A new research paper titled Dermatological and Genital Manifestations of Lyme Disease Including Morgellons Disease was published today and it produces several points of interest.
- Case study of a 49-year-old female with erosive genital lesions.
- Molecular testing confirmed the presence of Borrelia bacteria.
- Extra and Intracellular organisms were elicited.
- Borrelia bacteria were cultured from vaginal and serum specimens.
- Morgellons fibers observed in localized rashes.
- Relapsing Fever antibody stains were reactive but could not determine species.
- The patient experienced a relapse of symptoms upon cessation of antibiotic therapy.
- Biofilm aggregates observed to have gram-positive cocci surrounding a Borrelial core.
- The patients’ condition was determined as Class IV, Stage C Morgellons.
This paper brings to light several fascinating facts which should result in more careful scrutiny of potentially infectious patients. Primarily, the realities of poly-microbial colonization are readily apparent. The paradigm of “one-patient, one-disease” is demonstrably obsolete. If a patient is managing a variety of spirochetal organisms then the potential for treatment-resistant persistence is magnified.
