Chronic Lyme Disease and Co-infections: Differential Diagnosis
In Lyme disease, other infections, whose pathological synergism exacerbate the disease or induce similar clinical manifestations, can exist concurrently. Such concomitant infections are termed co-infections. Co-infections can be transmitted together with Borrelia burgdorferi by tick-bite, and result in multiple infection. Part of co-infections is inde-pendent of tick-bite.
