Clinical, laboratorial and therapeutic caracterization of equines infected by Lyme-Simile Borreliosis (Brazilian)


Lyme-Simile Borreliosis is a zoonosis transmitted by ticks Amblyomma and/or Rhipicephalus, similar of the Lyme Borreliosis of north hemisphere but typically Brazilian, caused by spirochetes of the complex Borrelia burgdorferi, with atypical morphology even in the hosts vertebrates and invertebrates. The disease is highly morbid and recurrent in humans and is capable of developing many systemic complications as articular, cardiac, neurologic and ophthalmic affections. It is an infection little studied in the national equines, especially in its clinical and therapeutic aspects. This project will research about clinical, serological and therapeutic evolution in experimentally infected and natural occurrence equines and will perform a survey about the occurrence in regions of recent human diagnosis in São Paulo State.
