Laboratory Diagnosis of Lyme Borreliosis

This review summarizes the state of the art in laboratory diagnostics for Lyme borreliosis, provides guidance in test selection and interpretation, and highlights future directions.

Lyme disease.

Lyme Disease and Arthritis

The microbiology, spectrum of clinical presentation, diagnostic challenges, and therapeutic options of Lyme disease are reviewed with a focus on Lyme arthritis, a pathogenic spirochete transmitted by the bite of an infected tick.

This issue of the Wiener klinische Wochenschrift contains review papers on clinical and diagnostic aspects of Lyme borreliosis, on hard ticks as vectors of human pathogens and on recent discussion on

Borrelia Genotyping in Lyme Disease

Genotyping of borrelia strains is of great importance for epidemiological, clinical, and evolutionary studies and many of them were implemented more or less successfully for diagnostic purposes.

Novel targets and strategies to combat borreliosis

A condensed digest of the history of vaccine development up to new promising vaccine candidates and strategies that are targeted against Lyme borreliosis, including elements of the tick vector, the reservoir hosts, and the Borrelia pathogen itself are provided.

Effects of topical corticosteroids and lidocaine on Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in mouse skin: potential impact to human clinical trials

Targeted proteomics results using infected mouse skin biopsies that facilitate detection of Lyme borreliosis using topical corticosteroids in mice are highly promising for recovery of spirochetes, and further optimization will be needed to translate this strategy for diagnosis of Lyme disease in patients.

Borreliosis: Early Diagnosis based on Clinical Suspicious

A 29-year-old young woman who was admitted to the hospital with fatigue was otherwise a healthy individual and claimed to be bitten one day before the admission, and it is highly recommend the early clinical diagnosis of Lyme disease in endemic areas.



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.

Clinical manifestations and diagnosis of lyme borreliosis.

Information on the relative frequency of individual clinical manifestations of Lyme borreliosis is limited; however, the skin is most frequently involved and skin manifestations frequently represent clues for the diagnosis.

Isolation of Borrelia burgdorferi from the myocardium of a patient with longstanding cardiomyopathy.

Lyme borreliosis (or Lyme disease) is a systemic disorder caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, a newly discovered species of bor RELIA, which is transmitted by arthropod species.

Diagnosis in the early stage of Lyme borreliosis relies on the clinical picture, whereas serological, molecular, microbiological, and histopathological findings are important adjuncts in the diagnosis of later stages of the infection.

[Human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in Europe].

Human granulocytic ehrlichiosis is an emerging infectious disease, which is transmitted by the tick Ixodes ricinus in Europe, like other diseases: Lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis, babesiosis...

Despite improvements in prevention, diagnosis and treatment, Lyme borreliosis (LB) is still the most common arthropod-borne disease in temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, with risk of
