Hypoglycorrhachia in Lyme meningitis.


We describe a previously healthy 11-year-old girl with acute neuroborreliosis, who presented with left sixth cranial nerve palsy, elevated intracranial pressure, markedly elevated cerebrospinal fluid leukocyte count and protein concentration and severe hypoglycorrhachia. These laboratory findings are atypical for neuroborreliosis.
