Abstract

To assess the potential risk for tick-borne agents, Ixodes ricinus were collected from 2 sites in northwestern Poland. The ticks were tested by polymerase chain reaction for coinfection with Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s. l.), human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE) agent, and Babesia microti. Of the 533 processed ticks, 16.7% were positive for B. burgdorferi s. l., 13.3% for B. microti, and 4.5% for the HGE agent. Twenty ticks were coinfected with 2 or 3 of the pathogens.
