Lyme Disease Science Conversations: Three newborn children contract Babesia through blood transfusions
Live conversations with a leading expert, Dr. Daniel Cameron, about the latest discoveries and advancements in Lyme disease and associated illnesses.
We will discuss three newborn children who contracted Babesia, a parasitic tick borne pathogen, through blood transfusions on February 27, 2018 at 8PM EST. The newborn children contracted Babesia through a transfusion from an asymptomatic donor. The cases were initially described in the 2017 issues of Journal Pediatric Infectious Disease Society and in my book “Lyme Disease takes on Medicine.”
