Abstract

Lyme borreliosis is a zoonosis characterized by great clinical polymorphism. We report 2 cases in patients who presented ocular manifestations: one anterior uveitis in an adult, which resolved under treatment, and one posterior uveitis in a child, whose initial ophthalmologic examination already showed retinal fibrous scars including the macular area.
Lyme disease is on the long list of causes that must be discussed in cases of uveitis. The diagnosis is based on a series of epidemiological, clinical, and biological arguments with Western Blot serological profile analysis. Treatment is based especially on intravenous antibiotics.
