|Contribution||Discovered spirochaete of relapsing fever.|
|Notes||Also called recurrent fever. Tick-borne Borrelia. Note that Garrison gives1873, whereas Ackerman gives1868. Lechevalier and Solotorovsky also give 1873, and say that Otto Obermeier saw thread-like structures in blood during relapsing fever bouts but not between bouts. Probably had significant impact; see LS p. 68.|
