Abstract

Spirochete diversity in acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans lesions in a closely defined central European site was compared to that in the local vector population, in human erythema migrans lesions, and in cerebrospinal fluid by amplifying and sequencing a segment of the gene of outer surface protein A directly from sampled tissues. Borrelia garinii, Borrelia afzelii, and Borrelia burgdorferi acutely infect human skin and invade internal tissues. Only B. afzelii, however, is associated with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans lesions, persisting chronically where the skin has atrophied.
