The Lyme Disease Foundation has been America's Premiere Medical, Scientific, and Patient Advocate Non-Profit for over 30 years.  After a short hiatus, the LDF is once again charging ahead in the fight with a goal of finding permanent solutions regarding tick-borne diseases.

Our Mission "Find the Truth, Tell the Truth" That is what we aim to do.


 
The CDC reports all cases of infectious disease on a weekly basis.  The table previously was found in the weekly MMWR published by the CDC.  The weekly figures are now published in a separate publication.  However, this publication does not include the reported cases of Lyme disease.  The last reported numbers of reported cases of Lyme disease were included in a annual report of the CDC usually published in August of the following year. 

Case of Lyme disease for the last available reporting year.

Additionally, total cases of Lyme disease reported since 1980.
