Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There has been great concern in the past regarding the possible fetal infection and teratogenicity from Lyme disease contracted during pregnancy because of the similarities of disease caused by Borrelia burgdorferi to syphilis. Although the initial retrospective case reports were alarming, more recent prospective data have been reassuring. This article reviews the evidence that currently supports the assurance of the benign nature of this infection with respect to the fetus.
