Scrub typhus is a rickettsial disease caused by gram negative coccobacilli and transmitted through the bite of larval stage of mite. The disease is notable in the Asia-Pacific belt with few sporadic and epidemic cases reported from India as well. The disease is well identified from North Western part of Rajasthan that are the areas with dense vegetation. The clinical scenario ranges from acute febrile illness to multiple organ dysfunction by virtue of haematogenous seedling. This case series highlights the neurological manifestations of scrub typhus that are diverse and life threatening but holding dearth of literature to convoy appropriately timed diagnosis and treatment.
