Sažetak

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is the most common central nervous system (CNS) infection in the endemic areas of Central Europe. TBE is a zoonosis whose reservoir are forest rodents, and other mammals and vectors are Ixodes ticks. Humans become infected through a tick bite, but recently many TBE outbreaks after consumption of unpasteurized milk and dairy products from infected livestock have been described. The aim of this study was to analyze clinical characteristics of five TBE cases who were infected after consumption of unpasteurized goat milk and dairy products from a small family farm in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County (June 2019). Tree patients developed CNS infection while two had febrile illness. None of the infected patients reported a history of a tick-bite or were vaccinated against TBE. The infection was confirmed by detection of TBE specific antibodies. Since "healthy" lifestyle that encourages consumption of raw milk and dairy products is increasingly fashionable, we would like to point out the importance of pasteurizing or boiling milk before the consumption.
