Molecular tests of blood and skin biopsy and serologic testing for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and syphilis were repeatedly negative, except for a C6 EIA IgM/IgG seroconversion (Immunetics, Boston, MA, USA) in convalescent-phase serum samples that was positive but could not be confirmed by either IgM or IgG immunoblot (Mikrogen, Neuried, Germany) (online Technical Appendix Table 2).

Immunoblot analysis revealed that IL-1[beta] maturation occurred in response to [DELTA]nleF, but not EDL933 (or [DELTA]nleF/nleF) infection, suggesting that [DELTA]nleF infection induced pyroptosis-like cell death.
