This chapter focuses on diseases transmitted from cats to humans. The diseases transmitted by inhalation (bordetellosis, plague and Q fever), vectors (ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, cat scratch disease, bacillary angiomatosis, flea-borne spotted fever, murine typhus and leishmaniasis), faecal-oral route (campylobacteriosis, helicobacteriosis, cryptosporidiosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, Anaerobiospirillum diarrhoea, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis gastroenteritis, toxocariasis, opisthorchiasis and dipylidiasis), bite, scratch or puncture (rabies, Erysipelothrix infection, anthrax, Pasteurella multocida infection, mixed aerobic and anaerobic bacterial infections, sporotrichosis, feline orthopox and tularaemia), soil exposure (histoplasmosis), direct contact (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, dermatophilosis, scabies, Cheyletiella infestation and dermatophytosis) and uncertain route (hepatitis E). Practical tips are given.
