In 38 patients suffering from rickettsiosis caused by Rickettsia conorii (Mediterranean Exanthematous Fever), hepatic involvement was studied via laboratory tests and in 26 cases by means of liver biopsy. SGOT, SGPT and alkaline phosphatase were found to be elevated in more than half of the patients (SGOT 74.4 +/- 93 U.K., SGPT 82.2 +/- 93 U.K., a.p. 58 +/-(More)
