Lyme Disease in China

When a young man was in China, he developed symptoms of Lyme Disease. His mother contacted CMI for a hospital referral. The MEDEX Emergency Response Center recommended a nearby hospital, which is a credentialed MEDEX Center of Excellence. The local physicians put him on antibiotics and the young man began to feel better. MEDEX continued to follow the case until the young man no longer needed our assistance.
