Staining with negative stains occasionally revealed the presence of a fibrillar substructure of endoflagella (arrows on Fig. 6a). Application of modified TEM fixation and staining procedures for thin sectioning (Hayes and Burgdorfer 1979) and modifications to cryotomy methods (Hayes et al. 1990) have shown endoflagella to be hollow (Fig. 6b; see also Fig. 3b). They are unsheathed, as demonstrated initially by Hovind-Hougen (1974) in her study of the relapsing fever spirochetes B. merionisi and B.

In the summary, he stated, "Our investigations tend to demonstrate that a spirochete is the cause of the disease. Definite evidence is still lacking, but Lennhoff's findings of spirochetes in histologic sections prepared from lesions of erythema migrans are remarkable" (Hellerstrom 1950). The first indisputable evidence that ECM is caused by an infectious agent susceptible to penicillin was provided by Binder and coworkers a few years later in 1955. They successfully transplanted pieces of skin taken from the peripheral zone of a lesion of an ECM patient into three volunteers who developed typical erythema migrans lesions within 1-3 weeks - in fact, a subpassage to a fourth person and among the volunteers was equally successful.
