It has been reported that patients with "chronic Lyme disease" have decreased number of natural killer cells, as defined by the CD57 marker.

We performed immunophenotyping in 9 individuals with post-Lyme disease syndrome, 12 who recovered from Lyme disease and 9 healthy volunteers.

The number of natural killer cells was not significantly different between the groups.
