This case involves a female patient who had been diagnosed with and treated for Lyme disease a few months before she began suffering from a renewed series of symptoms. She presented to her primary doctor, who had previously treated her for Lyme disease, with complaints of fever and night sweats. The patient immediately suspected that she had Lyme disease once again, but the family practitioner insisted that there was no need for concern. Some time later, the patient presented once again with worsening symptoms. The family practitioner again dismissed her concerns of Lyme disease and suggested that she had developed a minor cold, without ordering any lab studies or blood work. Eventually, the patient presented to a local ER where blood work was ordered and a diagnosis of Babesiosis was made. She was hospitalized for an extended period of time and suffered a host of complications as a result of the delay in treatment.
