Immunochemical and molecular investigations have identified this microorganism as a hitherto undescribed member of the genus Borrelia (Johnson et al. 1984a, b; Schmid et al. 1984; Barbour et al. 1986). Although ultrastructural analysis of B. burgdorferi has been the subject of several investigations in the United States and also in Europe, descriptions vary. Differences in morphological criteria, such as end shape and the number of endoflagella, among isolates of diverse origins have led to the speculation that additional spirochetal species may be involved in the etiology of Lyme borreliosis (Hovind-Hougen et al.
Its end-shape profile varies from blunt to pointed. The general morphology of B. la. It possesses a surface or S-layer that shows no substructural pattern, a trilaminar limiting outer membrane surrounding the periplasmic space that contains varying numbers of endoflagella, and an innermost compartment, the protoplasmic cylinder. 2 Surface or S-Layer The S-layer is in immediate apposition to the outer leaflet of the outer membrane, and does not appear to have any substructural pattern (Fig. 1). la-c.

The presence of similar if not identical spirochetes in I. ricinus, the incriminated vector of ECM in Europe, was fIrst established with smears of ticks that had been collected during a tick/rickettsial survey on the Swiss Plateau in 1978 (Burgdorfer et al. 1979). The slides had been stored as reference material and had to be stained by Giemsa for reexamination.
