Abstract: As described by Kerlik, et al, tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is an emerging infectionin Europe and alimentary transmission is increasingly being reported in some European countries[1,2]. However, this is not the case in Spain where no previous cases have been reported [2,3]. Herein, we describe an imported case of TBE in Spain in a boy who probably acquired the virus by ingestion of contaminated milky products in a trip to Estonia.
