Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a tick-borne and Borrelia burgdorferi (n. D. Übers .: in Europe, B. garinii and B. afzelii) caused disease. Early symptoms include erythema migrans, up months later neurological, cardiac or joint discomfort following the week. The diagnosis is clinically in the early stages of the disease in the first place, but serological tests can help diagnose cardiac, neurological and rheumatologic complications that occur later in the disease process. Treatment is with antibiotics such as doxycycline or ceftriaxone.

Epidemiology Lyme disease was described in 1976 because of the increased incidence in Lyme, Connecticut, and is now the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. It was documented in 49 states, but> 90% of cases occur from Maine to Virginia and Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan. Most cases in Northern California and Oregon occur on the west coast. Lyme disease also occurs in Europe and in the CIS countries and in China and Japan. The onset of disease is usually in the summer and early fall. Most patients are children and young adults who live in forested areas. Lymeboreliose is transmitted primarily by 4 Ixodes sp world: Ixodes scapularis (the tick) in the northeast and northern US, I. pacificus in the western US, I. ricinus in Europe and I. persulcatus in Asia. In the United States is the white-footed mouse (n. D. Übers .: possibly other animal hosts in Europe), the primary animal reservoir for Borrelia burgdorferi and the preferred host for nymph and larval forms of the deer tick. Deer are hosts for adult ticks, but have no Borrelia on. Other mammals (eg., Dogs) can be incidental hosts and can also suffer from disease. In Europe sheep are reservoirs for the adult tick.
