Scrub typhus which is endemic in India, is a mite-borne infectious disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. Scrub typhus is manifested clinically by high fever, intense generalized headache, diffuse myalgia and in many patients rash and an eschar at the site of the chigger bite. Here we report a case of scrub typhus presenting with epilepsia partialis continua.
