An 11-year-old girl developed bilateral keratitis, which we believe was a manifestation of
Lyme disease. She had had several attacks of
Lyme arthritis and was twice treated with parenteral penicillin. The keratitis developed five years after the initial episode of
Lyme arthritis at a time when there were no other manifestations of
Lyme disease. It cleared completely in both eyes after topical corticosteroid therapy.
