Abstract

Among other manifestations, the following diseases caused by Borrelia burgdorferi in Europe are transmitted by ticks of the species ixodes ricinus: erythema migrans (EM), lymphadenosis benigna cutis (LBC), lymphocytic meningo-radiculitis (Bannwarth’s syndrome), and acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans (ACA). We report on a female patient, who developed EM 10 days after a-tick bite in Berlin. Borrelia burgdorferi could be cultivated from a skin biopsy specimen taken from the periphery of the EM. The isolates were identified as Borrelia burgdorferi by indirect immunofluorescence using the monoclonal antibodies H 9724 and H 5332.
