Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Among a variety of more common differential diagnoses, the aetiology of acute respiratory failure includes
Lyme neuroborreliosis.

CASE PRESENTATION:

We report an 87-years old huntsman with unilateral phrenic nerve palsy as a consequence of
Lyme neuroborreliosis.

CONCLUSION:

Although
Lyme neuroborreliosis is a rare cause of diaphragmatic weakness, it should be considered in the differential workup because of its potentially treatable nature.
