25 Human Blood demonstrating elongated Classical coiled Spirochetal profiles Presumptively Borrelia Species ( Leptospires are excluded morphologically) (Treponemes are excluded by length and irregularity of coil formation) Red Blood cells and Platelets are present. Phase Contrast Microscopy. PATIENT DIAGNOSIS = SCHIZOPHRENIA Two distinct Very elongated Spirochetes Presumptively Borrelia species based on length and of Irregularity of Coiling Indicated by 2 arrows

26 Tangle groupings of Elongated Spirochetes Some of which are Associated with attached Round bodies attached to the Axis of the spirochetes - The Presumptive classification Of these spirochetes is based on : 1.Length 2.Irregularity of Coils along the axis 3. Attached Round bodies Human Blood demonstrating elongated Classical coiled Spirochetal profiles Presumptively Borrelia Species ( Leptospires are excluded morphologically) (Treponemes are excluded by length and irregularity of coil formation) Red Blood cells and Platelets are present. Phase Contrast Microscopy. PATIENT DIAGNOSIS = SCHIZOPHRENIA

28 Human Blood demonstrating elongated Classical coiled Spirochetal profiles Presumptively Borrelia Species ( Leptospires are excluded morphologically) (Treponemes are excluded by length and irregularity of coil formation) Red Blood cells and Platelets are present. Phase Contrast Microscopy. PATIENT DIAGNOSIS = SCHIZOPHRENIA A Tangle of Spirochetes:: Presumptively Borrelia species (red arrows) A Single Elongated Mainly uncoiled Spirochete:: Presumptively Borrelia Species (Green arrow)

29 Human Blood demonstrating elongated Classical coiled Spirochetal profiles Presumptively Borrelia Species ( Leptospires are excluded morphologically) (Treponemes are excluded by length and irregularity of coil formation) Red Blood cells and Platelets are present. Phase Contrast Microscopy. PATIENT DIAGNOSIS = SCHIZOPHRENIA Elongated Spirochete(blue), Short spirochete (green) And “ring form” (red) Associated with attached Round bodies (Yellow)attached to the Axis of the Ring form - The Presumptive classification Of these spirochetes is based on :::::::::: Length:::::: Irregularity of Coils ::::::along the axis AND Attached Round bodies::::::::::
