We describe a 43 year old lady who presented with features of acute abdomen and jaundice. During the course of her illness, her clinical status worsened until serology confirmed antibodies to Orientiatsutsugamushi. A diagnosis of Scrub typhus was reached and doxycycline was initiated which led to an uneventful recovery. In endemic areas, patients presenting with acute abdomen must be scrutinized to have scrub typhus.
