If a patient has an EM highly suggestive of Lyme disease and recent symptom onset (<2-3 weeks), B. burgdorferi antibody tests are not recommended because of low sensitivity at this stage of infection.
The adult life stage of the blacklegged tick (formerly deer tick) is currently out and feeding in wooded regions of the state. As usual, we expect blacklegged tick nymphs (smaller immature stage) to be out sometime in May and peak in June. For folks spending lots of time in the woods, repellents containing permethrin are very effective when applied to clothing.
The accredited CME learning modules offered on lymecme.info are intended to help clinicians stay up to date with recent developments in this field. Presentations provide a concise review of the evidence, highlighting points that are especially relevant to patient care.
