Lyme disease, or Lyme borreliosis (LB), has become the most common tick-borne disease in Europe and the north east of the USA. In the USA, Borrelia burgdorferi is the only causative agent, while in Europe Borrelia garinii and Borrelia afzelii are the predominant causative agents. Jeroen Coumou presents recent evidence-based information on the ecology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of LB. He argues against the many misconceptions that surround the disease and provides a framework for Dutch physicians confronted with patients with putative LB.
