Borrelia burgdorferi - insidious spirochete (1/4)

Today I would like to write a few words about the disease, which probably bothers many people in Poland and abroad. Her the correct diagnosis is still very difficult and it both in Poland and the United States. It is a disease transmitted by ticks, caused by a bacterium called Borrelia Burgdorferi and commonly known as Lyme. The information that is available in the textbooks of infectious diseases and neurology, even the newest, are a bit outdated in the context of latest discoveries in this field, so I would like to State share for the latest in diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Lyme disease

Lyme disease is also called very often with Lyme Disease, because is in the town of Lyme in the U.S. during the 60's was first described epidemic of the disease was identified there, then the perpetrator - spirochete and a transmitter - the tick.

The disease is transferred to humans by the bite of an infected tick. Spirochete spreads rapidly through the body of the new host, already four hours after being bitten them were found in the brain of animals experiments. The disease can spread not only the adult form tick, but also his character larval stage called a nymph, bite nymph, however, generally do not notice it.

After 4 days to several weeks after the bite site appears to penetrate the so-called spirochete. erythema migrans. It is Eccentric, red, slightly ventricose mark, sometimes slightly itchy or prickly. Often it is the patient unnoticed. Although this change is quite significant, it ONLY occurs in less than POWŁOWIE cases.

After several weeks of infection, other symptoms appear disease. They have their source either in the inflammatory response directed against krętkowi and produced by neurotoksynach. Dominate among them flu-like symptoms: fever, sweats, chills, heat waves, swollen lymph nodes and subsequently neurological symptoms: inflammation of nerve roots, meningitis meningitis, cranial nerve palsy (especially palsy). In late Lyme disease, which may develop after a few months of infection may include pain in the joints, chronic atrophic skin, abnormal conduction in the heart. There can also be a variety of other less specific symptoms such as fatigue, poor endurance, pain, muscle cramps, vision problems and ear, over-reaction to alcohol, increased motion sickness, irregular menstruation, headaches.

Characteristic of Lyme disease is the worsening of symptoms at intervals monthly, which is related to the spirochete life cycle.

The problem apparently only affects a small circle of people. However, it is important because many patients with Lyme disease has officially recognized: - Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) - Multiple sclerosis (MS) - Or any other autoimmune disease

This follows from the fact that universal testing for Lyme disease are available only from about 2000-2002 a year (?). (Even in the years 1998-1999, when I worked in the Department of Neurology, patients admitted for diagnostic MS does not have routinely performed the test for Lyme disease.) These tests, which are currently available, often give a false result negative ...

Jeśkli about RA - I know personally patient who start their disease clearly associated with tick-bitten by 6 one day, and tests for Lyme disease was repeatedly negative.

[This does not mean that all patients (or even majority) with MS and RA are sick with Lyme disease, may have A number of other reasons ...]
