Destructive Chronic Borrelia Meningoencephalitis in a Child Untreated for 15 Years

J Bensch et al. Scand J Infect Dis. .

Abstract

A case of borrelia spirochetosis with recurring episodes of progressively destructive chronic meningoencephalitis, untreated for 15 years, is presented. The patient, now 23 years old, represents an example of the natural course of the disease and may serve as a reminder of the diagnosis in retrospective cases as well as prospectively for acute and chronic states of serous meningitis/meningoencephalitis both in children and adults.
