- Two-step Laboratory Testing Process for Lyme Disease
- Tick-borne Relapsing Fever (TBRF) is another tick-borne infection transmitted by Borrelia sp. spirochetes. Patients with TBRF will typically test positive for Lyme disease. Texas is a low incidence state for Lyme disease, so it is important that TBRF be considered in the differential for patients who test positive for Lyme disease and have no history of travel to high incidence areas.
