To the Editor: Dr Seltzer and colleagues1 report that 69% of patients with Lyme disease (LD) had 1 or more persisting symptom since acquiring the disease but conclude that this outcome was no different from that of control patients. In an earlier article,2 some of the same authors reported that less than 5% of patients with LD had any long-term sequelae but now report that "only" 19% of patients have LD-associated symptoms.
