Abstract

The 11,424 cases of Lyme disease reported in 1994 represented a nearly 40% increase from the previous year. The dramatic increase of Lyme disease in the United States points to the need for home healthcare nurses to review their knowledge of the clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention measures for this emerging infection.
