But if you work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coming of spring means the return of nasty diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes. The killjoys at CDC celebrated the end of winter with a bummer of a paper showing that infections spread by ticks doubled in the United States from 2004 to 2016. (Tick populations have exploded in recent decades, perhaps due to climate change and loss of biodiversity.) Lyme disease The most common infection spread by ticks in the US i...

Conclusions:This case highlights how Lyme disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis for multiple cranial neuropathies. Further, as prior case reports of CNS Lyme patients have shown polyclonal and monoclonal lymphocyte expansion, this case demonstrates the diagnostic uncertainty regarding whether flow cytometry reflects a reactive process to infection or a new lymphoma. Treatment with antibiotics and clinical improvement helped to clarify the etiology in this case.Disclosure: Dr. Perrone has nothing to disclose. Dr. Xu has nothing to disclose.

She was referring, of course, to Lyme disease, that scourge of outdoor enthusiasts. While the peak season for Lyme disease is indeed summer, the ticks that transmit it are active March through December. And, while this may be off-season for the ticks, it is a good time to catch up on how to stay safe in the not-so-distant spring. What is Lyme disease, and how do you treat it?
