Abstract

A 40-year-old man developed progressive neurologic manifestations following a tick bite with subsequent localized erythema migrans. These manifestations included bilateral sensory radiculoneuritis (T7-12), rectovesical dysfunction, paraparesis, right facial palsy and nuchal rigidity. Both serum and cerebrospinal fluid titers of IgG antibody against Borrelia burgdorferi were 1:8,192 using indirect immunofluorescence assay. No IgM antibody was detected. With high-dose intravenous penicillin and corticosteroid treatment the neurologic symptoms and signs gradually subsided, with a corresponding decrease in the IgG antibody titers. Among the cases of
Lyme disease reported so far in Japan, the present case seems to be typical and serious in terms of the severity of nervous system involvement and the intensity of the antibody response.
