Abstract

The heightened worldwide recognition of the health burden of tickborne infection derives largely from the increasing incidence of
Lyme disease, human babesiosis, and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis, both individually and in concert. Because these infections share the same rodent reservoir and tick vector hosts, they can be cotransmitted to human hosts. Indeed, human coinfections involving various combinations of these pathogens are common, and some tend to be particularly severe. Diagnostic procedures and clinical management of the resulting
disease syndrome is rendered complex by the diversity of pathogens involved and by the unusual diversity and duration of symptoms.
