Aspects of Lyme borreliosis in Europe

Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis. 2001 Jan;20(1):6-13. doi: 10.1007/s100960000412.

Abstract

Lyme borreliosis in Europe is somewhat different from that encountered in the USA. The aim of this review is to present historical, ecological, epidemiological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects associated with Lyme borreliosis in Europe. It becomes apparent that a considerable body of information about European Lyme borreliosis exists, which has been accumulated for more than 100 years.
