Abstract

BACKGROUND:

We report on a 42-year-old female patient who presented with a schizophreniform disorder and complete relief of symptoms after specific therapy.

METHODS:

Cerebrospinal fluid and magnetic resonance imaging findings led to the diagnosis of
Lyme disease.

RESULTS:

To our knowledge this is the first reported case with an exclusive psychiatric manifestation of
Lyme disease.

CONCLUSIONS:

In case of first manifestation of psychotic disorder, although neurological symptoms are lacking,
Lyme disease should be considered and be excluded by cerebrospinal fluid analysis.
