  1. Isolation and species typing of Lyme borreliosis spirochaetes from UK patients with erythema migrans.

    Article - En anglais

    Skin biopsies taken from UK cases of erythema migrans rash were cultured for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato.

    Reverse line blotting was used to type the infecting genospecies in PCR-positive cultures and biopsies.

    B. garinii or B. afzelii was identified in 56% (5/9) of biopsies/cultures tested.

    All patients were tested by conventional serology.

    PCR confirmed infection in two patients where serological testing failed to detect antibody.
