Abstract

The role that microorganisms might have in the development of Alzheimer’s disease is a topic of considerable interest. In this article we discuss whether there is credible evidence that Lyme disease is a cause of Alzheimer’s disease and critically review a recent publication claiming that Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto infection, the primary cause of Lyme disease in the United States, may cause Lewy body dementia.

We conclude that no convincing evidence exists that Lyme disease is a cause of either Alzheimer’s disease or Lewy body dementia.
Somethings never change.

Any threat to the established narrative is met with staunch opposition as we see in the case of B. burgdorferi infection and possible connection to Alzheimer’s disease. Establishing this connection turns Lyme disease into something far more sinister proving that our public health officials have been asleep at the wheel while the disabled patient population and advocacy groups have been shouting from the rooftops for decades.
