Abstract: We report the sexual transmission of Coxiella burnetii from a man with occupationally acquired Q fever to his wife. Fifteen days after coitus, his wife also developed serologically proven acute Q fever. C. burnetii DNA sequences were detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) performed on semen samples obtained from the husband at 4 and 15 months after the onset of acute Q fever, but PCR results were variable at 23 months, indicating the presence of few organisms.
