Part Descriptions

LP14087-8   Borrelia burgdorferi
Borrelia burgdorferi is a Gram negative spirochete bacterium that causes Lyme disease. It is most commonly transmitted to humans by an infected tick. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans that usually spreads from the bite mark. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Paralysis of one or both sides of the face may occur. Treatment often requires antibiotics. This bacterium is microaerophillic and slow-growing, explaining the long delays when diagnosing Lyme disease. There are a large number of sub-species which differ in clinical symptoms and presentation as well as geographic distribution. The life-cycle of B. burgdorferi is complex, requiring ticks, rodents, and deer as temporary hosts. Mice are the primary reservoir for the bacteria that are transmitted to deer by the tick Ixodes scapularis. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP37334-7   Borrelia burgdorferi DNA
B. burgdorferi causes Lyme disease and is transmitted to humans via a tick vector. IgM detected by Western blot is best for early detection. IgM antibodies appear within a few weeks of disease onset, whereas IgG antibodies appear later. IgG, and to some extent IgM antibodies, may persist for months or even years. Positive PCR tests may occur before sero-conversion, but are not diagnostic for active disease as PCR does not distinguish between live and dead organisms. A negative result does not exclude the diagnosis due to transient spirochetemia, small amount of spirochetes in the sample, or the presence of B. burgdorferi strains with alternate DNA sequences.

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to "Body fld", the System "Asp" in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while "Body fld" is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.

Basic Attributes

First Released
Version 1.0j-a
Last Updated
Version 2.63
Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
