Lyme Disease can be a
Diagnostic Challenge
By Marina Makous, MD

Lyme disease is the most common tickborne illness in the United States and has
a high incidence in Chester Country. It
is caused by the spiral-shaped microbe
Borrelia burgdorferi, a spirochete, that
infects humans through the bite of a "deer
tick." After the bite, the bacteria rapidly
spread from the skin throughout the body,
producing different symptoms at different
times. In some patients, a healthy immune
system may be enough to eradicate this
spirochete. In most others, antibiotic
treatment	is	needed	to	fight	the	infection.
