Diagnostic tools in lyme borreliosis : clinical history compared with serology.
The occurrence of a history of clinical Lyme borreliosis and the prevalence of positive antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi were studied in 431 Dutch hunters.
The majority of the hunters (336 or 18%) did not report any complaints and had no positive IgG antibodies to B. burgdorferi.
Sixty-five hunters (15.1%) had no clinical manifestations but did have positive antibodies to B. burgdorferi.
Only 1.9% of the population studied had had past symptoms of definite or probable Lyme borreliosis.
