On Lyme, As with All Infections, Advocating for Patients is our Highest Priority

Lyme disease is a very important and growing problem. It is for that reason, in addition to new information published in recent years, that IDSA has undertaken the process of developing a guideline that now brings together three medical societies, IDSA, the American Academy of Neurology, and the American College of Rheumatology, along with representation from eight other medical and scientific specialties. We are committed to developing a guideline that will have the best interests of patients at its core and will reflect the best science available.
