Caption: Lyme disease. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the spirochaete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi cause of lyme disease in humans. The spiral-shaped bacteria are passed on to humans via tick bites. Symptoms of lyme disease include skin lesions, neurological and cardiac abnormalities & recurrent or chronic arthritis. Several species of tick have so far been found to harbour the bacteria, but the principal vectors are thought to be Ixodes ricinus, in Europe and I. dammini and I. pacificus in North America. Magnification: x3650 at 6x7cm size.
