Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This article presents an overview of
Lyme disease (LD) as it applies to neuropsychiatry and summarises research results on the epidemiology of LD in South Africa.

METHOD:

The study is based on a review of research papers from various medical disciplines that focused on the epidemiology of LD in South Africa.

RESULTS:

Assessment of the incidence of LD in South Africa is based on a few anecdotal studies. The results of the studies are dominated by experimental weeknesses.

CONCLUSIONS:

The sporadic nature of LD Incidence in South Africa may either reflect a restriction of research efforts or be a true indication of the epidemiology of the
disease. This review lends support to the former hypothesis. The low reported incidence of LD in South Africa is probably due to a lack of awareness and research effort.
