Clinical manifestations and epidemiological aspects leading to a diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis: neurological and psychiatric manifestations in the course of Lyme borreliosis

Clinical manifestations and epidemiological aspects leading to a diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis: neurological and psychiatric manifestations in the course of Lyme borreliosis

Medecine et Maladies Infectieuses 37(7-8): 532-539

Lyme disease is associated with various systemic and neurological manifestations. The neurological and psychiatric manifestations of Lyme disease are more frequently observed during its secondary phase (stage 2) than during its late tertiary phase (stage 3). In stage 2, cerebrospinal fluid and bacterial tests are consistent with the ongoing infection. Painful meningoradiculitis, encephalomyelitis and encephalitis, and symptoms of depression are the most characteristic at this stage.
