Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Several reports have suggested a link between infection with Borrelia burgdorferi (the spirochete causing
Lyme disease) and development of cutaneous B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (CBCL).

METHODS:

We did a correlation analysis of CBCL and
Lyme disease using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program and from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.

RESULTS:

We could not demonstrate a geographic correlation between incidence rates of
Lyme disease and CBCL.

CONCLUSION:

This observation suggests that infection with B. burgdorferi is not a major risk factor for CBCL in the USA.
