Acute transverse myelitis in a child with Lyme disease and a review of literature.Pediatr Neurol. 2013 Apr; 48(4):325-8.PN
Acute transverse myelitis is a rare Borellia burgdorferi-related neurologic complication in childhood. We present a 12-year-old girl who was diagnosed with acute transverse myelitis associated with a borreliosis infection. We also review clinical features in all five cases of Borellia burgdorferi-related transverse myelitis in children. We describe here the sixth child with borreliosis-related transverse myelitis.
