Lyme borreliosis in South Africa



Lyme borreliosis in South Africa



South African Medical Journal 76(10): 581-581



In October 1988 the manager of a riding school in Natal, South Africa, developed severe headache following a tick bite and was treated with tetracycline for 5 days. Immunofluorescent antibody testing (IFAT) was positive for Borrelia burgdorferi. CNS symptoms and arthralgia continued and after high-dose penicillin therapy she recovered; ELISA and immunoblot results confirmed the IFAT, indicating recent B. burgdorferi infection.
