[Recurrent nerve palsy due to Lyme disease: report of two cases].Rev Med Interne. 2010 Mar; 31(3):229-31.RM
Neuroborreliosis can be a difficult diagnosis which requires epidemiologic, clinical and biologic arguments.
We report two patients who presented with a recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy with positive Lyme serology and favorable outcome after antibiotic therapy. In one case, a lymphocytic meningitis with intrathecal production of specific antibodies was evidenced.
Recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy is an uncommon manifestation of neuroborreliosis. Lyme serology is an important tool when neurologic disorder occurs because of an atypical course of Lyme disease.
