Abstract

Human babesiosis continues to spread in multiple regions of the United States. It is transmitted by Ixodes species ticks, as are Lyme disease and anaplasmosis. Its variable clinical presentations, together with serologic detection limitations, require that a high index of clinical suspicion be present for prompt diagnosis. This article discusses case presentations showing the wide range of symptoms and presentations that are possible with babesiosis.
