Meningoencephalitis from Borrelia miyamotoi in an immunocompromised patient.
A case of progressive mental deterioration in an older, immunocompromised patient is reported, and even though Koch's postulates were not met, it is likely that B. miyamotoi is an underrecognized cause of disease, especially in sites where Lyme disease is endemic.

Borrelia miyamotoi Disease in the Northeastern United States
To better define the clinical spectrum of this newly recognized zoonosis, definitive cases of acute BMD are identified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of patient blood samples sent to a reference laboratory by clinical practices, thereby providing a preliminary assessment of its relative public health burden.
Borrelia miyamotoi Infection Presenting as Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis
The presence of B. miyamotoi DNA in the peripheral blood and the patients' eventual therapeutic response to doxycycline are consistent with the hypothesis that their illness was due to this newly recognized spirochete.
Reproductive Ecology of the Florida Scrub Lizard, Sceloporus woodi
Reproduction and growth of Sceloporus woodi in the Ocala National Forest, Florida, were studied and clutch size in woodi appears less r-selected than Texas undulatus.
Xenodiagnosis to detect Borrelia burgdorferi infection: a first-in-human study.
Xenodiagnosis using Ixodes scapularis larvae was safe and well tolerated and there was insufficient evidence, however, to conclude that viable spirochetes were present in either patient.
A Comparative Study of Endoparasitism among Some Southern California Lizard Populations
The results suggest that differing prevalences of parasites at different altitudes may be attributed to: '(1) specificity to altitudinally zoned definitive or intermediate hosts; (2) presence of single or multiple poten- tial host species; (3) possible influence by humidity and temperature ranges of air and substrate, as indicated by altitudinal changes in plant communities).
