Tick-borne diseases are increasingly important public health problems as case numbers and the list of identified pathogens continue to grow. A recently published retrospective study on the medical costs associated with Lyme disease suggests that $0.7 -1.3 billion is spent annually in the US to pay for direct medical costs related to the illness. The scientific understanding of these pathogens, their vectors, and the illnesses they produce continues to evolve.
