MMWR: Notes from the Field: High Volume of Lyme Disease Laboratory Reporting in a Low-Incidence Stat

Thursday, October 26, 2017   (0 Comments)

Although Arkansas lies within the geographic range of the principal Lyme disease tick vector, Ixodes scapularis, because of ecologic and entomologic factors, the risk for human infection is low, and no confirmed Lyme disease cases were reported in Arkansas during 2008–2014 (1). However, during 2015–2016, the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) received several hundred potentially positive serologic laboratory reports for Lyme disease.
