EMERGING INCIDENCE OF TICK BORNE DISEASES IN AUSTRALIA
Emerging incidence of Lyme borreliosis, babesiosis, bartonellosis, and granulocytic ehrlichiosis in Australia
Peter J Mayne

In particular, the first cases of endemic human Babesia andBartonella disease in Australia with coexisting Borrelia infection are described, thus defining current hidden and unrecognized components of TBD and demonstrating local acquisition in patients who have never been abroad.
