          Abstract

          Tick-borne relapsing fever manifests as relapsing episodes of fever with significant morbidity and mortality. We report a case of Borrelia turicatae disease in a 13-year-old male youth with outdoor exposures in Texas. After multiple clinic visits the diagnosis was made, and treatment was initiated. The patient did well without long term sequelae.
