how can i avoid lyme disease? what to say to the patient who magic bullet for eliminating or medical breakthrough for preventing lyme disease can be seen on the horizon. this fast-growing pandemic, second only to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in public interest and concern, will probably continue to increase in range and incidence for the foreseeable future. ticks are notoriously difficult to thwart, but intelligent application of control measures may be effective. more important, commonsense safety measures offer personal protection to the degree ...19902336417

the enlarging clinical spectrum of lyme disease: lyme cerebral vasculitis, a new disease entity.the case of a patient with cerebral vasculitis with a right thalamic infarct associated with cerebral spinal fluid lyme disease is presented. this entity has not been described in the united states, and only one similar case in the world literature could be found. the patient presented with a progressive headache and subsequent development of grand mal seizure activity. lyme disease has been associated with cranial nerve palsies, peripheral and cranial radiculopathies, aseptic meningitis, enceph ...19902331105
[heart involvement in lyme borreliosis. case report].lyme disease is a systemic illness with skin, neurologic, joint, and cardiac involvement. absence of typical skin lesion--erythema chronicum migrans--during the first period of disease may cause the diagnosis difficult. syncope due to complete atrioventricular block was the first symptom of disease in our patient, but no tick bite anamnestic data were available. quick changes on ekg tracing during cardiac pacing were present. echocardiography revealed left ventricular dysfunction. specific immun ...19902249293
lyme disease. recognizing its many manifestations.lyme borreliosis is a relatively new disease, so much remains to be learned about it. in this article, typical manifestations at each stage are reviewed. however, as the authors emphasize, diagnosis is still a challenge because a given patient may have from a few to all of the features discussed, stages often overlap, and characteristics come and go and may mimic other illnesses.19902186395

fatal lyme carditis and endodermal heterotopia of the atrioventricular node.a fatal case of lyme carditis occurring in a suffolk farmworker is reported. post-mortem examination of the heart showed pericarditis, focal myocarditis and prominent endocardial and interstitial fibrosis. the additional finding of endodermal heterotopia ('mesothelioma') of the atrioventricular node raises the possibility that this could also be related to lyme infection and account for the relatively frequent occurrence of atrioventricular block in this condition. lyme disease should always be ...19902349186

lyme polyradiculoneuropathy presenting as increasing abdominal girth.we describe a patient with documented lyme disease whose major complaint was increasing abdominal distention. electrophysiologic studies demonstrated denervation of the lower thoracic paraspinal muscles and the rectus abdominis. expanding abdominal girth can be an unusual manifestation of the polyradiculoneuropathy associated with lyme disease.19902137205

the pathogenesis of lyme disease.lyme disease affects several major organ systems and leads to chronic illness. the pathogenesis of this disease appears to be centered around the long-term persistence of the organisms in tissues. in lyme disease, isolations of b. burgdorferi are rare. it is thought that few organisms actually invade the host and that host mediators amplify the inflammatory response. immune and nonimmune phagocytosis leading to bacterial killing occurs in lyme disease. this organism shows preference for cell sur ...19892555848
nervous system manifestations of lyme disease.neurologic involvement is commonplace in lyme borreliosis. neuropathies can be acute or chronic, focal or disseminated, but are predominantly axonal. cns infection can also be acute or indolent, focal or disseminated; meningitis, encephalitis, and cranial nerve palsies occur. a mild encephalopathy is also common, but only occasionally due to cns infection.19892555847

lyme disease.within the last decade, lyme borreliosis has emerged as a complex new infection whose distribution is worldwide. the disorder is caused by a recently recognized spirochete, b. burgdorferi, transmitted by ticks of the i. ricinus complex. certain species of mice are critical in the life cycle of the spirochete, and deer appear to be crucial to the tick. although the disorder's basic outlines are similar everywhere, there are regional variations in the causative spirochete, animal hosts, and clinic ...19892668764
[limb and joint pain in lyme disease. an important differential neurologic diagnosis].on the basis of 4 cases, attention is drawn to the problem of early detection of lyme disease. the occurrence of joint pain with fluctuating spread and unresponsive to the usual antiinflammatory therapy should prompt the physician to consider lyme disease, which can be confirmed or excluded only by lumbar puncture. the csf shows a cell count of between 300/3 and 2,000/3 cells (90% lymphocytes) and usually moderately elevated protein. a demonstration of elevated antibody titers confirms the diagn ...19892767602

treatment of lyme disease.lyme disease, a tick-transmitted spirochetal infection, can be divided into three stages that can overlap or occur alone. the goals of antibiotic therapy in stage one are to shorten the duration of early disease and to prevent the development of later stages of the illness. this can usually be accomplished with oral antibiotic therapy. later stages of the illness are frequently more difficult to treat, requiring prolonged oral or intravenous antibiotic therapy.19892667887
