Convinced that ECM in Europe and Lyme disease in the United States are expressions of one and the same etiologic agent, we directed our attention toward the west coast of the United States where the fIrst case of ECM had been contracted in Sonoma County, California in 1975, and where the blacklegged western tick I. pacificus had been incriminated as the possible vector. A tick survey in southeastern Oregon and in north/central California yielded 2402 ticks of which 39 contained spirochetes similar if not identical to those discovered in I.
