Description:Caption:
This photograph depicts the medial aspect of the right calf of a patient, who had presented with what was diagnosed as Lyme disease. Note the characteristic red, expanding rash referred to as erythema migrans (EM), that had been caused by the bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. In the background, you can also see that the patient’s right leg, also displayed an EM rash. B. burgdorferi bacteria are transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks.
