Lyme borreliosis is an infectious
disease, with multisystem involvement, due to a spirochete known as Borrelia burgdorferi, transmitted to humans by ticks; its recent emergence is, in part, the consequence of reforestation and the rise in deer and rodents populations. The prevention and the treatment of this
disease are well standardized, the main risk being its misdiagnosis.
