Lyme Disease Fundamentals provides an in-depth examination of the basic science, trial and clinical experience evidence pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. Epidemiologic, microbiologic and pathophysiologic evidence provide a framework for understanding which patients are most at risk for contracting the infection and potential disease manifestations. The role of laboratory testing in Lyme disease evaluations is discussed and information regarding an appropriate work-up for other common diseases in the differential diagnosis is included. Lyme disease can be complicated by the presence of other tick-borne illnesses and the disease manifestations, diagnostic testing and treatment of these entities will also be reviewed. The content related to therapeutic management provides analyses of the available trial evidence as well as information from other sources. This section highlights ILADS’ current GRADE-based treatment recommendations for management of known tick bites, erythema migrans and persistent (chronic) Lyme disease as well as management strategies for other presentations. The concepts of evidence-based medicine and shared decision-making are also incorporated into this section.
ILADS encourages participants to continue their learning November 4-6 at the annual ILADS scientific session. Learn more about the conference.
