Abstract
Neuroborreliosis affects approximately 15 % of people infected with Borrelia burgdorferi. The symptoms are very varied, which can sometimes delay the diagnosis. We can diagnose a neuroborreliosis in front of a compatible clinic and laboratory examinations, in particular a lumbar puncture showing a pleocytosis, an intrathecal synthesis of antibodies against B. burgdorferi, and an increased level of chemokine CKCL13. We present the case of a patient in whom the diagnosis was delayed in connection with non-specific symptoms and we review the latest recommendations in terms of treatment of neuroborreliosis.
