1C1G.1 Disseminated 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.
