Lyme Disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the U.S. From 1994-2006, an average of 74 cases was reported annually in Texas. Many diagnosed cases are not reflected in official statistics due to restrictive reporting criteria. Lyme is largely unrecognized in Texas so it is often misdiagnosed by doctors who are not familiar with its clinical presentation.
