Results: There were a total of 133 cases with a cumulative incidence rate (CIR) of 0.27 per million populations. Significantly more men were infected by Q fever than women (79.7% versus 20.3%) (p<0.01), and a higher incidence of Q fever were observed in those age more than 40 years old (72.9%), (p<0.01). Moreover, the seasonal pattern of outbreaks revealed that most outbreaks occurred in the early spring throughout the ending of summer, and that significant more outbreaks occurred in the western parts (69.2%) than eastern areas (30.8%) in the Korean peninsula (p<0.01). Furthermore, the number of cases of Q fever was significantly higher in rural areas (67.7%) than in urban (32.3%), (p<0.01). Conclusion: Q fever in Korea is a new emerging zoonosis, a serious concerned to the public health. Therefore, the development a health education system for Q fever prevention and improvement of the living environment will aid in reducing from its spread from animal reservoirs.
