Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

Two children who contracted Babesia from their mothers.

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 two children who contracted Babesia from their mothers.

These cases were originally described in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Disease Society, written by Saetre and colleagues in 2017.

Both mothers were treated for Lyme disease during their pregnancy. Both babies were apparently born healthy and sent home. One of the babies had a positive PCR test for Babesia before going home but was not treated.  Both babies returned to the hospital with Babesia. Both required prolonged hospitalization and treatment.

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