Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by being bitten by an infected tick. Four bacteria species —Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia mayonii, Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii— are responsible for this condition. In the United States, Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii produce Lyme disease; for European and Asian territories, Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii are responsible.
