Scrub typhus (ST), hitherto absent from many parts of India, is now recently being recognized as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the country. Its diverse clinical presentations, low of the index of suspicion by the treating physician, and lack of diagnostic testing in many parts of the country result in delayed treatment, leading to a host of complications. We here report such a complication, where ST manifested with a large intracerebral hemorrhage, of which, to the best of our knowledge, only nine cases have been reported in the English language worldwide. Family physicians, who are the often first point of contact for treatment of febrile illness, as ST typically manifests, need to be aware of this entity to prevent such catastrophic consequences.
