Tick and Vector-Borne Coinfections

The following is a basic list including some, but not all coinfections. Note: Multiple infections may be transmitted at one time by a single tick.

(Quote from Krause, et. al., JAMA 1996 "The number of symptoms and duration of illness in patients with concurrent Lyme disease and Babesiosis are greater than in patients with either infection alone."
Added note: In fact, all coinfections complicate diagnosis and treatment.

Some Tick-Borne and Other Vector-Borne Emerging Infectious Diseases:

Babesiosis (The causative agent of Babesiosis is similar to the causative agent of Malaria.)
Borrelia  B burdorferi and other Spirochetal Diseases including but not limited to B Mayoni, B Miyamotoi, B parkeri, B sinica, B hermsii

Lyme and Relapsing Fever
