Lyme disease has been associated with many systemic and ocular complications. The authors' patient, a 26-year-old man, developed recurrent pars planitis with two episodes of acute pericarditis. Extensive medical investigations were negative except for a highly positive western blot for Borrelia burgdorferi. Specific antibiotic treatment for Lyme disease was followed by a long lasting period without any relapse.
