We report a case of
Lyme disease that presented with urinary retention. The individual then experienced lower extremity paralysis. Paralysis and urinary retention resolved with intravenous ceftriaxone antibiotic. To our knowledge this is the first report of a urological manifestation as the initial clinical presentation of
Lyme disease. Recognition of clinical symptoms and urological complications of
Lyme disease also are discussed.
