This study presented examples of base-calling DNA sequencing electropherograms routinely generated in a clinical diagnostic laboratory on DNA extracts of human blood specimens and ticks collected from human skin bites and from the environment. Since some of the tick samples tested were collected in Ireland, borrelial species or strains not known to exist in the United States were also detected by analysis of this 16S rRNA “core genome”. We recommend that hospital laboratories located in Lyme disease endemic areas begin to use a “core genome” sequencing test to routinely diagnose spir...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewLyme disease is a tick-borne zoonosis transmitted through a bite of a tick carrying a spirochete belonging toBorrelia species. In the last 20  years, the reported incidence of Lyme disease is increased by three times in Europe. Clinically, the illness develops through a primary stage with a typical skin rash (erythema marginatum), then a secondary stage with possible neurologic or cardiac involvement. The last stage (chronic Lyme disease ) is mainly represented by arthritis or late neurological complications but nowadays is rarely seen due to precocious antibiotic use.Recent FindingsThe diagno...
