Lyme disease is a multisystem disorder caused by spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi) carried by a tick. The tick injects spirochete-laden saliva into the bloodstream or deposits fecal matter on the skin. After incubating for 3 to 32 days, the spirochetes migrates outward on the skin, causing a rash, and disseminate to other skin sites or organs through the bloodstream or lymph system. Spirochetes may survive for years in the joints or die after triggering an inflammatory response in the host.
