Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Weil-Felix test is an agglutination test for the diagnosis of rickettsial infections. It was first described in 1916. By virtue of its long history and of its simplicity, it has been one of the most widely employed tests for rickettsia on a global scale, despite being superseded in many settings by more sensitive and specific diagnostic tests.The basis of the test is the presence of antigenic cross-reactivity between Rickettsia spp. and certain serotypes of non-motile Proteus spp., a phenomenon first published by Edmund Weil and Arthur Felix in 1916. The serum of patients diagnosed with epidemic typhus was found to agglutinate in the presence of bacteria now known as Proteus vulgaris. Ensuing work elucidated that it was in fact the somatic (O) antigen that cross-reacted with anti-rickettsial antibodies, and furthermore, that different Proteus O antigens would cross-react with different species of Rickettsia.
