Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the present landscape, numerous accounts highlight the emergence of previously neglected, undetected, or misdiagnosed tick-borne pathogens and associated diseases in the Balkans. As the focal point of this Special Issue, we delve into the clinical spectrum, unique characteristics, and effective treatment modalities for tick-borne diseases in the Balkan region. This Special Issue will also focus on the detection and description of tick-borne pathogens in ticks, animals or humans within the Balkan peninsula. We invite contributions that provide insights into the prevalence and characteristics of ticks and tick-borne pathogens, as well as those that describe clinical aspects, address diagnostic challenges, and propose effective treatment approaches for tick-borne infections in the Balkans, fostering a deeper understanding of these diseases among healthcare practitioners and researchers.
This Special Issue is open to all researchers involved in research on ticks, tick-borne pathogens and the diseases they cause in the Balkan region; original research articles, reviews and case reports are welcome.
