Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report on a vitreous specimen in a 53-year-old patient with unilateral choroiditis and vitritis of unknown cause.

METHODS:

Cytologic examination of a vitreous aspirate stained by the Papanicolaou method.

RESULTS:

Intravitreal spirochetes consistent with Borrelia burgdorferi were found in this seronegative patient.

CONCLUSION:

Vitreous specimens of patients with choroiditis and vitritis of unknown cause should be examined cytologically, particularly when serologic results do not corroborate the clinical findings of
Lyme disease.
