Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

A 67-year-old woman with a delayed onset of Babesia.

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 67-year-old woman with a delayed onset of Babesia.

Hoversten and her colleague first discussed this case in the British Medical Journal Case Reports in 2018.

The authors discussed the nearly three-week gap in time between the woman’s erythema migrans rash and her diagnosis of Babesia. This is not the first case where the onset of Babesia was delayed.

The authors cited two papers describing a 3 to 4-week delay in the onset of Babesia. I described a paper in an earlier podcast where two babies contracted Babesia from their mothers.  https://danielcameronmd.com/lyme-disease-podcast-children-contract-babesia-from-mothers/

This delay may explain why some Lyme disease patients relapse after initially improving with doxycycline or amoxicillin. 

You can hear more about these cases through his blogs, social media, and YouTube. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up with these cases.
