Objective: Highlight the epidemiological and clinical importance derived from the lab tests state of Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) in children who were cared for in the children's hospital in Sonora. Material and methods: We reviewed the clinical records of 116 children with RMSF admitted in the past 10 years, to report the clinical features and laboratory data as well as the treatment and clinical monitoring in children with a diagnosis of this disease and its lethality. Results: The fatality rate was 28.3% and by logistic regression analysis there was a significant relationship (p < 0.0001) between the initiation of therapy and survival of children (R2= 0.49). Conclusion: The information gathered indicates that Sonora remains an endemic area of RMFS with a high mortality rate and multiple clinical complications.
