A) Anaplasma platys nested PCR products of 30 blood samples from dogs in Chile. Positive samples from dogs 7, 12, 17, 19, 23, and 25 are indicated by a. This epidemiological survey of Anaplasma platys was carried out in rural and urban areas of three distinct regions of the State of Minas Gerais. Anaplasma platys is a Gram-negative bacterium that belongs to the rickettsial family Anaplasmataceae. In dogs, A platys multiplies inside platelet vacuoles and .

The former infects plaths neutrophils and eosinophils whereas the latter infects platelets. Unlike Babesia species, hemoglobinuria does not occur as the hemolysis is extravascular in the spleen and bone marrow.
Dysplasia was also evident and characterized by cytoplasm fragmentation and nuclear abnormalities, including hyperlobulation and disorganized nuclei. Both dogs originated from a kennel located in Putignano Bari, Apulia, Italy.

The disease is transmitted by several species of ticks and is called tick-borne fever. A wide range of clinical manifestations of canine cyclic thrombocytopenia has been described. PCR confirmation of A. Indeed, a similar phenomenon was described with Anaplasma phagocytophilum experimental infection of a human megakaryocytic cell culture line, where platelet progenitors became infected by this pathogen, which is closely related anaplasmx A.
Xnaplasma are recognized as important emerging tickborne diseases in humans and wild and domestic animals.
