Abstract

Borrelia burgdorferi was isolated from the blood of a bushy-tailed wood rat (Neotoma cinerea) from northeastern California, USA. This is the first isolation of live B. burgdorferi spirochetes from a wild animal in California. Spirochetes were observed in stained tissues from the brain, liver, spleen, and kidneys.
