Rickettsia mnemonic

Rickettsia, are small, gram-negative, nonmotile, rod-shaped bacterium.

Transmission: Rickettsia requires an arthropod vector for transmission.

Metabolism: It is an obligate intracellular parasite. They can not make there own ATP. 

Clinical: Damages the endothelial cells lining blood vessels.

In the diagram below, rickettsia generalities are shown: Riding on arthropod, saying we must go to ATP house, meaning cell and then he turned back to endothelium to injure it.

Stay awesome.
