Lyme disease - National Library of Medicine - PubMed Health

Lyme disease - National Library of Medicine - PubMed Health | Lyme Disease Perspectives | Scoop.it
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread through the bite of one of several types of ticks.
Amy Sharpton's insight:

It is worth noting that co-infections are not addressed in the article.
