Abstract/Notes

Objective: The purpose of this paper is to review information regarding the current guidelines for the clinical laboratory diagnosis of Lyme disease as set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to chiropractic physicians and to discuss the clinical utility of this testing.

Methods: The CDC’s website was reviewed to determine what their current recommendations are for the clinical laboratory testing of Lyme disease.

Results: The CDC’s established guidelines recommend the use of a 2-tiered serologic testing algorithm for the evaluation of patients with suspected Lyme disease.

Conclusion: This review provides doctors of chiropractic with information to remain current with the CDC’s recommended guidelines for Lyme disease testing because patients may present to their office with the associated signs and symptoms of Lyme disease.
