Contents:
The Emergence and Epidemiology of Lyme Borreliosis in Europe and North America / Sunil K Sood, Susan O'Connell, Klaus Weber -- The Spirochetes and Vector Ticks of Lyme Borreliosis in Nature / Joseph Piesman, Pierre-Fraṅois Humair -- Early Lyme Borreliosis / Vijay K Sikand, Robert R Mullegger -- Lyme Carditis / Fadi A Haddad, Sunil K Sood -- Nervous System Lyme Borreliosis / John J Halperin, Leif Dotevall -- Lyme Arthritis / Frank Dressler, Patricia I Irigoyen, Norman T Ilowite, Hans-Iko Huppertz -- Borrelial Lymphocytoma and Acrodermatitis Chronica Atrophicans / Mark B Salzman, Robert R Mullegger -- Lyme Borreliosis Coinfections with Anaplasma And Babesia / Paul M Lantos, Peter J Krause -- The Role of Culture and Nucleic Acid Amplification in Diagnosis of Lyme Borreliosis / Gary P Wormser, Guiqing Wang -- Serodiagnosis of Lyme Borreliosis / Barbara J B Johnson, Maria E Aguero-Rosenfeld, Bettina Wilske -- Prognosis of Persons with Lyme Borreliosis / Eugene D Shapiro, Sunil K Sood -- Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis / Sunil K Sood.
Summary: The discovery of Lyme disease, biologically better termed Lyme borreliosis, has provided scientists with a tremendous opportunity to elucidate pathophysiologic mechanisms in borrelial infections. Large, carefully designed, and mostly prospective clinico-epidemiologic studies are the basis for the evidence-based review chapters that constitute "Lyme Borreliosos: Epidemiology and Clinical Applications". Clinicians will find herein a body of knowledge that will facilitate their management of patients, as well as arm them with authoritative information they can use to dispel the myths about tick-borne infections that have crept into the popular knowledge.
