Detection of Borrelia crocidurae in a vaginal swab after miscarriage, rural Senegal, Western Africa.
Tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) borrelias are one of the main causes of fever in rural Africa and can cause miscarriages. Here, we detected, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, Borrelia crocidurae in a self-vaginal sampling as a probable cause of spontaneous miscarriage.
When will mainstream medicine wake up? When will they connect the dots that borrelia is all over genitilia? That there is a real probability it can be sexually and congenitally transmitted? When will they quit saying that because something is “rare” it doesn’t happen? If you are the sorry sucker who contracted it that way – are you unimportant?
Borrelia is defying all boxes people attempt to put it into.
According to this paper written in 2013, Borrelia crocidurae, associated with tick-borne relapsing fever, is stated as being benign in one breath and then extremely neurotropic and can cross the blood/brain barrier and persist, as well as cause encephalitis and meningitis, in the next breath. None of which are benign in my book: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/19/2/12-1325_article
And now it’s been found in a vaginal swab after a miscarriage.
This is a perfect example of how research for all things tick related is still in the Dark Ages.
