Lyme disease and associated tickborne infections constitute the fastest-growing epidemic in the world today. Furthermore, the discovery of new species of Borrelia has complicated the clinical picture of these diseases. The Special Issue will focus on epidemiologic, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of tickborne diseases, including Lyme disease, Relapsing Fever Borrelia, and various tickborne coinfections including Babesia, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Rickettsia and tickborne viruses. New approaches for vaccines against tickborne diseases are also open for discussion.
