Recurrent uveitis, cystoid macular edema and pericarditis in Lyme disease

Ocul Immunol Inflamm. 1994;2(2):111-3. doi: 10.3109/09273949409057067.


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.
