Presenter: Dan Kinderlehrer, MD
Format: 1hr video presentation
Lyme disease is an infection caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium. It is transmitted by the Ixodes tick and can generate multisystem complaints, particularly involving the nervous system. This is further complicated by the presence of tick-borne coinfections such as Babesia and Bartonella. It is now appreciated that these tick-borne infections often cause a host of psychiatric issues. In fact, neuropsychiatric complaints can dominate the clinical picture.
This lecture will describe the mental health disorders associated with these infections, describe their pathogenesis, and outline the clinical manifestations that lead a practitioner to suspect an underlying organic etiology. This lecture will also detail the best way to test for Lyme disease.
