Pop Quiz #48

erythema migrans

The correct answer is E. Amoxicillin.

In the setting of pregnancy, amoxicillin is the treatment of choice for Lyme Disease since doxycycline is contraindicated. Doxycycline, the first line antibiotic of choice in Lyme disease, should not be used in pregnant women because of risk of permanent tooth discolouration and possible impact on bone formation in the fetus.
