Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Data from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health suggest that the incidence of neuroborreliosis has increased in Norway during recent years. However, this may also be due to a change in diagnostic procedures and increased awareness of the
disease.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

At the pediatric department in Stavanger University Hospital we have systematically diagnosed and registered data on all children with neuroborreliosis in a database since 1996.

RESULTS:

The number of children diagnosed with neuroborreliosis increased in the entire period from 1996 to 2007 (p < 0.001). The median number of children diagnosed per year increased from 10.5 to 18.5 from the first to the second 6 year-period (p = 0.004).

INTERPRETATION:

There has been a real increase in childhood neuroborreliosis during the last 12 years.
