Lyme disease: an elusive diagnosis.

Abstract

Lyme disease presents health care practitioners with a complex set of challenges. The history, physical assessment, and clinical evaluation must all be meticulously performed, as
Lyme disease can prove to be an exceptionally elusive entity. This article details the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, nursing history, and health care implications of
Lyme disease. Education is emphasized as the key to both the detection and prevention of this rapidly increasing syndrome.
