Christian Perronne
Infectious disease
Young Rock singer Avril Lavigne recently announced that she was suffering
from Lyme disease. Bedridden for five months, she said she "felt she was
going to die." What is this disease, mainly transmitted by tick bites? An
update with Christian Perronne, Head of Infectious Diseases at the
University Hospital Raymond Poincare in Garches (Paris-Ouest-France).

Lyme disease is mainly transmitted through tick bites (D.COLE / SIPA)

Lyme disease was described for the first time a little more than 30 years
in the Lyme area of the United States (Connecticut).

It is also known as "Lyme borreliosis" since the cause is a bacterium of
the family of Borrelia. It had already been studied in the past century,
and it is thought that the disease – or related diseases - have ancient
origins. The genome of Ötzi, the famous "Ice Man" who was found mummified
in 1991 was indeed full of Borrelia.

1st phase: a red patch around the bite

Lyme disease is transmitted mainly by tick bites. Ticks pump blood, which
contains Borrelia, and the re-inoculate another host later. Many animals,
such as rodents, birds or deer are reservoirs for this bacterium.

In general, a tick bite goes unnoticed, people will only remember
approximately one in three.

In the primary phase, it causes an erythema migrans around the bite: a
bull’s eye patch, it is usually round, red with a lighter center and darker
edge, it can sometimes be purplish.

In general, people do not see the tick and they think they have been bitten
by a spider, but the features described above are specific to the disease.
If you notice them, consult a doctor immediately.

Fatigue, paralysis, meningitis: symptoms are numerous

Untreated, the rash will often disappear by itself, but some people can
produce new bull’s eye rashes, long after the bite.

The patient is entering the second phase, which can be insidious, the
symptoms are multiple yet they often go unnoticed.

The affected person may experience heavy fatigue, unusual joint and muscle
pain. They may also suffer from a more rheumatic or neurological form with
memory problems, concentration, eye damage, meningitis, paralysis (often
facial), but also heart damage, skin problems...Lyme can truly manifest
itself in the whole body.

Patients are told that it is in “all in their heads”

This can be a real danger, because doctors often focus on the most obvious
symptom, without ever making the link with Lyme disease. This situation can
last months, weeks, years even. As a result, doctors may be treating
patients for another illness or the patients are told that it is all in
their heads, it is depression, and we, infectious disease specialists, end
up treating patients who have in fact landed in psychiatric care.

In my consultations, I see sick people every day, some are in absolutely
dismal states. Some have a 20-year gap in their lives, some have had to
stop working, some have lost their spouse and their work, some even commit

The disease is not rare: the test are bad

The only way the disease can be detected today is through a serological
test: if it is positive, the patient can access treatment, but if it is
negative, patients are simply abandoned and left wandering without a

This serological test is controversial today as it was calibrated primarily
using an American bacterial strain. As a result,  many European patients
have never been diagnosed.

In France, the number of cases is officially 43 cases per 100,000 people,
but in reality numbers are much higher. Lyme disease is classified as a
rare disease, but this is completely wrong, it simply reflects how bad the
tests and the treatments are.

Coping as we can with treatments

The only thing experts have managed to agree on is what should be done in
the primary phase: at least two weeks of antibiotics should be prescribed.
But the problem is that in 80% of cases it is not done, doctors are simply
not willing to give antibiotics for a tick bite.

In the secondary and tertiary phases, the American and French consensus
recommends that patients be treated for three to four weeks. If the illness
persists, a second class of antibiotics can be tried, but this will not
heal not every patient.

After this period, it is “terra incognita”: everyone does as s/he pleases
and some doctors even resort to using unauthorized products. Treatments are
individualized: antibiotics, antifungals, antiparasitics are used, they
probably also work on co-infections ... In the long term, herbal medicine
may work well on some patients and it may be a plus, as it might enable
doctors to avoid giving antibiotics for too long.

Medicine is not capable today of properly treating this disease. The
reasoning being : why should money be spent on scientific research for an
“imaginary or rare” disease? Nobody is going to care.

A one-year waiting period for my consultations

When the disease has become chronic, because of lack of early diagnosis and
treatment, 80% of patients relapse, and as a result, doctors are even more
incredulous. Some tell me that they have "never seen any Lyme". My opinion
is that they simply have not recognized that one of their patients had
Lyme! and they have been treating him/her for something else. I personally
have a waiting period of one year for my consultations, it is utter madness

It is known that the bacteria keeps waking up from dormancy in cycles. Once
you are infected, in many cases, you will never get rid of it. Some
patients suffer from moderate forms but others are very ill, and their
whole lives can become living hells. Some patients, for example, can become
bedridden after 10 years of illness.

In the US, a vicious and brutal war has been taking place for decades. It
has been fueled by a handful of “experts” who refuse to recognize Lyme in
its chronic form. Yet, on a positive note, three US states and Canada have
recently voted a law to formally recognize chronic Lyme disease and to
encourage research. In France, we are lagging far behind: a bill aiming at
obtaining better ways to diagnose, treating and preventing Lyme disease was
recently rejected by the National Assembly.

Christian Perronne
Enfermedades infecciosas
La joven cantante Avril Lavigne anunció recientemente que sufre de la enfermedad de Lyme. Postrada en la cama durante cinco meses, "se sintió morir." ¿Qué es esta enfermedad, que se transmite principalmente por la picadura de garrapatas? Una actualización con Christian Perronne, Director del Servicio de las Enfermedades Infecciosas del Hospital Universitario Raymond Poincaré en Garches (Paris-Ouest-France).
La enfermedad de Lyme se transmite principalmente a través de las picaduras de garrapatas (D.COLE / SIPA)
La enfermedad de Lyme fue descrita por primera vez hay un poco más de 30 años en el área de Lyme de los Estados Unidos(Connecticut).
También se la conoce como "borreliosis de Lyme" porque es una bacteria de la familia de las Borrelias. Esta bacteria ya ha sido estudiado en el pasado, lo que nos permite pensar que esta enfermedad -  o  enfermedades
relacionadas- tienen orígenes antiguas. Se encontró que el genoma de Ötzi, el famoso "Ice Man" descubierto momificado en 1991 era, de hecho, lleno de Borrelia.
Primera fase: una mancha de color roja al rededor de la picadura
La enfermedad de Lyme se transmite principalmente por la picadura de garrapatas. Estas chupan sangre, que contiene Borrelia, y la re-inoculan después. Muchos animales, como roedores, aves o venados son reservorios de esta bacteria.
En general, una picadura de garrapata pasa desapercibida, la gente recordando solamente una picadura de cada tres.
En la fase primaria, crea eritema migrans (EM) alrededor de la picadura:
una mancha roja redonda con un centro más claro y el borde más oscuro, a veces de color púrpura.
En general, la gente no va a notar nada o piensan que han sido mordidos por una araña, pero estas características, (el EM) son específicas de la enfermedad. Si usted las note, consulte inmediatamente.
Un Eritema migrans es característico de la enfermedad de Lyme (Wikimedia
La fatiga, la parálisis (facial por ejemplo), la meningitis, hay muchos síntomas. Si no se trata, la erupción muy a menudo desaparece por sí mismo, pero en algunas personas reaparecen manchas redondas, mucho tiempo después de la picadura.
A continuación, se entra en la segunda fase, que puede ser insidiosa, los síntomas son múltiples y, a menudo no son visibles.
La persona afectada puede sentir una fatiga rara, dolores en las articulaciones y los músculos que no suele tener. También pueden haber formas más reumáticas o otras más neurológicas con problemas de memoria, concentración, lesiones oculares, meningitis, parálisis, puede también dañar el corazón, la piel ... Realmente se puede ver todos tipos de síntomas.
A los pacientes se les dicen muy a menudo que está en su cabeza
Eso es un peligro serio, porque los médicos se concentran en un síntoma, sin aun pensar en la bacteria que causa la enfermedad de Lyme. Pero de hecho ****ese periodo sin diagnostico puede durar meses, semanas, aun años****.
Resulta que los pacientes están tratados por otra enfermedad o se les dicen que está todo en su cabeza, que es una depresión, y nosotros que conocemos y tratamos la Enfermedad de Lyme, nos quedamos con pacientes que se habían mandado a un servicio de psiquiátrica!
Veo pacientes en mis consultas todos los días, algunos se encuentran en pésimo estado. Hay algunos que tienen una brecha de 20 años en su vida, han tenido que dejar de trabajar, han perdido su pareja y su trabajo, incluso hay algunos que se suicidan.
**No es una enfermedad rara: es que las pruebas son malas**
La única manera de detectar la enfermedad hoy es hacer una prueba
serológica: si es positiva, se puede tener acceso a un tratamiento, pero si es negativo, nos quedamos con pacientes errantes.
Esta prueba es controversial: está calibrada principalmente en la cepa bacteriana de América. Así resulta que muchos pacientes nunca han sido diagnosticados.
En Francia, hay oficialmente 43 casos por cada 100.000 personas, pero la realidad es bien distinta. La enfermedad de Lyme se clasifica como enfermedad rara, pero eso es totalmente erróneo, es sólo que las pruebas y los tratamientos son malos.
Nosotros, los médicos, hacemos frente como sea posible para el tratamiento. La única cosa en la que todos están de acuerdo es para la fase primaria, durante la cual debe ser prescrito por lo menos dos semanas de antibióticos. Pero el problema es que no lo es: en el 80% de los casos, los médicos no le darán antibióticos a un paciente para una picadura de garrapata.
En fases secundarias y terciarias, el consenso americano y francés es de tratar durante tres a cuatro semanas. Si persiste, puede intentar una segunda clase de antibióticos, pero aun así nunca se consigue curar a todos los pacientes.
Después de este período, es “terra incognita”: cada uno hace lo que le parece bueno y algunos médicos tratan con productos no autorizados. Los tratamientos son individualizados, antibióticos, anti fúngicos, antiparasitarios que probablemente funcionan sobre las infecciones asociadas... A largo plazo, la medicina herbal funciona bien para ciertos pacientes y tiene el mérito de evitar de dar antibióticos por un tiempo demasiado largo.
******La medicina no es capaz de tratar adecuadamente esta enfermedad en la actualidad****. Básicamente, no hay ninguna investigación científica para una enfermedad "imaginaria o rara". Nadie quiere preocuparse de ella.
Un período de espera de un año para mis consultas
Cuando la enfermedad es ***crónica, el 80% de los pacientes recaen***, y sus médicos les creen aun menos. Algunos médicos me dicen que "nunca han visto un caso de Lyme", están errados, lo que está pasando es que tratan a sus pacientes para otra cosa, nada más. Tengo un período de espera de un año para mis consultas, es una locura ...
Se debe saber que las bacterias se despiertan de la dormancia en ciclos.
Cuando ya uno está infectado, ***en muchos casos, nunca se descarta***. Hay formas moderadas y otras que son dramáticamente serias y que pueden envenenar la vida.
Algunos pacientes tienen que vivir en la cama después de 10 años de enfermos.
En los EE.UU., hay una guerra sangrienta para que se reconozca la enfermedad de Lyme de forma crónica. Tres estados de los Estados Unidos y Canadá votaron recientemente una ley para reconocer formalmente la enfermedad de Lyme crónica y fomentar la búsqueda. En Francia, estamos muy lejos de eso: el recién proyecto de ley para un mejor diagnóstico, tratamiento y prevención de la enfermedad de Lyme no ha sido aprobada por la Asamblea Nacional.
