Summer 2015 — Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is an infection caused by a bacterial spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi). This bacteria is transmitted by the deer tick or Ixodes species which is commonly found in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. Lyme disease is a complex disease that is often difficult to diagnosis. The symptoms of Lyme disease overlap with the symptoms of other inflammatory or autoimmune diseases.
