The parasite Orientia tsutsugamushi, formerly known as Rickettsia and a member of the family Rickettsiaceae, is what causes the infectious illness known as scrub typhus. The disease is spread by a rodent parasite called a larval trombiculid mite that bites its host. A bite from a trombiculid mite typically results in an ulcer of the skin, along with fever, a spotted rash over the chest, and swollen lymph nodes as secondary symptoms. After the initial bite, the illness lasts for 10 to 12 days. If treatment is received, the fever will subside after 36 hours; if it is not, problems or even death might result.

For the clinical diagnosis of scrub typhus, the appearance of eschar at the mite bite site is a specific (98.9%) sign.
