Abstract

Lyme disease is the result of an infection, caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium, which is common in ticks; people can develop Lyme disease after being bitten by an infected tick. This report is part of a series of evidence reviews on Lyme disease commissioned by the Department of Health (England) Policy Research Programme and undertaken by the Department of Health Reviews Facility. It contains a systematic evidence map; it provides a descriptive overview of the available research on Lyme disease in humans.
