1C1G Lyme borreliosis

A tick-borne infection by the spirochaete Borrelia burgdorferi, Lyme borreliosis typically presents with a characteristic rash, erythema chronicum migrans, at an average of seven days after a bite from an infected tick. The rash may be accompanied by flu-like symptoms. Disseminated infection may cause meningitis, cranial neuropathies and carditis amongst other manifestations. Late disease, months to years after initial infection, may present with a pauciarticular arthritis or with encephalomyelitis.

 

There are three stages of Lyme disease.

  • Stage 1 is called early localized Lyme disease. The bacteria have not yet spread throughout the body.
  • Stage 2 is called early disseminated Lyme disease. The bacteria have begun to spread throughout the body.
  • Stage 3 is called late disseminated Lyme disease. The bacteria have spread throughout the body.
