Borrelia burgdorferi - Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is the fastest growing and most common tick-borne infectious disease in the United States and Europe. Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto is the pathogen that causes Lyme disease in the United States. Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii are other closely related species that causes Lyme disease in Europe and Asia respectively. In the United States, Lyme disease hotspots are found on the East Coast and in mid-Atlantic states as well as in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with fewer cases reported on the Pacific Coast, Northern California and Oregon. Ticks are spreading to other states as well and bringing Borrelia along with them.
