During the recent years, several genotyping methods have been established for analysis of Borrelia to characterise strains and determine the phylogenetic relationships between strains [7-11].
It should also be noted that Borrelia has no gene coding for toxins that can harm the host (4) but survival of the microbe requires collagen.
Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini is a disease with an unknown cause (2, 4), even though in some cases Borrelia burgdorferi was the primary factor as a cause due to findings of high Borrelia antibody titers in some patients with atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini (10).
Although there is no consensus on the mechanism of spread of the agent to the nervous system, it has been suggested that the Borrelia strain in North America (Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto) predominantly spreads hematogenously and the Borrelia strain in Europe (B.

Two groups of Borrelia, the Borrelia burgdorferi group that causes Lyme disease and the relapsing fever Borrelia group that cause relapsing fever, are found in similar habitats and overlapping locations worldwide.
The new research follows up on a previous study suggesting that modified microscopy techniques (LM-method) could detect active cases of Lyme disease (caused by Borrelia bacteria) and Babesia (a tick-borne malaria-like parasite) in just one to two days.
LB is caused by spirochetes of the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex, which comprises at least B.
