Persons infected with Borrelia miyamotoi most likely have fever, joint pains, fatigue, and headache, though unlike Lyme disease, rash is uncommon. The diagnosis of Borrelia miyamotoi is most often made by clinical examination combined with evidence of tick bite (or known or presumed exposure to ticks in endemic areas). Amplification of B. miyamotoi genomic DNA from blood, fluids or tissues confirms the diagnosis.
