Rickettsia Conorii is an obligate intracellular gram-negative bacterium that causes a spectrum of different syndromes. An 83-year-old splenectomised patient has septic shock associated with coagulopathy and multi-organ-failure. The patient is treated with doxycycline, vasoactive amines, fresh frozen plasma, antithrombin III with progressive clinical improvement.
