Dermatitis chronica athropicans secondary to Borrelia afzelii infection locally acquired in Northern Mexico

Introduction: Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans (ACA) is a late cutaneous manifestation of Lyme disease characterized by inflammatory lesions that slowly progress to atrophic plaques. The vast majority of ACA cases have been described in Europe and are associated to the genospecies Borrelia afzelii (B. afzelii). We hereby report the first case in Northern Mexico of ACA caused by locally acquired B. afzelii.
