Aao plaquenil 2016 guidelines Keflex and plaquenil By Daniel J. Cameron, MD, MPH Although Lyme disease is the most talked about tick-transmitted disease, Babesia is more common than you might think. In the 2015 issue of Trends in Parasitology, Diuk-Wasser and colleagues report that up to 40% of patients with Lyme disease experienced concurrent Babesiosis. 1 This means that out of the Babesia is caused by a parasite called Babesia microti. Babesia is typically contracted from the bite of a deer tick. In early cases of Babesia, the parasite may be seen in the red cells by looking at a thick smear of blood under the microscope. In other cases, Babesia can only be detected by a DNA test called a PCR or an antibody test. Babesia, like malaria, is a parasite that jumps inside the red blood cells, the difference from malaria is that "our" Babesia bugs jump in pairs and even three of them inside one same red globule, meaning its two or three times worse than malaria. In the US and other places of the world still some consider Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) for treating malaria and the herb “Artemisin” or Artemisinin is the new way to treat – not very well accepted in my home country because the results are not as expected; they really deal with this disease every day and have been treating it successfully for so many years- but again that is another discussion, point here is Babesia. Babesia is a very deteriorating condition and affects humans all over the US.

Discussion Babesia microti is the most common cause of babesiosis. This predominantly tick-borne zoonosis is endemic to southern New England, New York, the north central American Midwest, and Europe. Babesia species parasitize red blood cells. Infections are commonly asymptomatic but can be associated with a mild to moderate febrile illness or fulminant.
