Cutis. 1992 Jun;49(6):409-11.

Abstract

Lyme borreliosis was identified in Czechoslovakia for the first time in 1985. Since then, more cases have gradually been identified. Since 1989, about 1,500 patients per ten million inhabitants have been reported every year. Having summarized the results of the therapy of 371 patients with dermatologic manifestations of lyme borreliosis (erythema migrans in 315, borrelial lymphocytoma in fifteen, and acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans in forty-one) we present the antibiotic regimens used by Czechoslovak dermatologists in clinical practice.
