Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

17-year-old young man who dies of Lyme carditis

Dr. Cameron feels that the best way to get to know Lyme disease is through reviewing actual cases. In this Inside Lyme Podcast episode, he will be discussing a 17-year-old young man who dies of Lyme Carditis. 

This case was first discussed in the journal Cardiovascular Pathologist written by Yoon and colleagues in 2015.

The autopsy showed evidence of Lyme disease. The spirochetes that cause Lyme disease were found in the young man’s fresh liver and myocardial tissue. There was also evidence of these spirochetes in the heart, lung, and brain tissues using immunohistochemistry staining and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

The cause of death was fatal Lyme carditis.
