Experts monitoring Lyme disease cases after 2011 surge

Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – After the number of cases of Lyme disease in Onondaga County quadrupled in 2011, health officials are closely monitoring cases in the area.

The trademark symptom – a target shaped pattern – is one of the signs of Lyme disease, but it doesn’t always appear.
