Spirochetal infections of the nervous system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The principal human spirochetoses, Treponema pallidum and Borrelia burgdorferi, are systemic infectious diseases that involve the nervous system with some frequency. In both, meningitis is far more common than parenchymal central nervous system (CNS) involvement, but in both, concerns about CNS disease have received a great deal of emphasis (1).
