Overseas-acquired tick-borne diseases: Lyme disease
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
This Guidance Note does not cover co-infections associated with Lyme disease or southern tick-associated rash illness (STARI) (pathogen unknown). Symptoms of STARI and early Lyme disease are similar, with STARI potentially being misdiagnosed as Lyme disease in areas with both lone star ticks and black-legged ticks.
