Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness transmitted to humans, has become increasingly recognized.

OBJECTIVE:

Given the myriad neurovegetative and neuropsychiatric symptoms that can be associated with
Lyme disease, we sought to review the epidemiology, evaluation, and treatment of the disorder.

METHODS:

A case vignette that highlights manifestations of the condition and dilemmas associated with its treatment is presented.

CONCLUSIONS:

Knowledge about its symptoms, its abnormal laboratory tests, and its course can help to guide the timely and appropriate management of this spirochetal infection.
