  • Borreliosis (Lyme disease) can be contracted in temperate forested regions throughout Europe, the United States and northern Asia. Very common in the north east of the US and in eastern and central Europe, more so than western Europe. In contrast to North America, Lyme disease in Europe can be caused by several different species of Borrelia burgdorferi and may have somewhat different symptoms. The initial rash, or erythema migrans (EM), may last longer but have less associated inflammation than the EM produced by U.S. infections.

Tickborne encephalitis (TBE) occurs in some forested areas in Europe and Asia, from eastern France to northern Japan and from northern Russia to Albania. TBE is caused by TBE virus, a flavivirus that is closely related to Powassan virus. TBE virus has three subtypes: European, Siberian, and Far Eastern. TBE virus is primarily transmitted to humans by infected Ixodes species ticks. It can also be acquired by ingesting unpasteurized dairy products (such as milk and cheese) from infected goats, sheep, or cows.
