Lyme Carditis: Restitutio Ad Integrum Documented by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Bilgehan Karadag et al. Cardiol Rev. .

Abstract

Lyme disease is a tickborne illness that could cause, weeks to months later, complications involving the joints, central nervous system, and cardiovascular system. We report a case of cardiac manifestation with transitory higher degree atrioventricular block and dysfunction of the left ventricle. Complete resolution without signs of myocardial scar is demonstrated by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
