lyme carditis: an important cause of reversible heart block.lyme disease is a tick-borne spirochetal infection, characterized by erythema chronicum migrans and an acute systemic illness. the disease is endemic in many parts of the north-eastern united states. without treatment, late rheumatic, neurologic, and cardiac complications frequently occur. we report four serologically confirmed cases of lyme carditis in previously healthy young men (mean age, 45 years) from endemic areas. each presented with severe symptomatic atrioventricular block, three with ...19892644885

[facial palsy in lyme disease].this paper reports twenty four cases of facial palsy in lyme disease for the first time in the forest region. most cases had history of tick bite. two strains of spirochete were isolated from the blood of 7 patients with facial palsy. these spirochetes were immunologically closely related to b. burgdorferi. eighteen serum samples of facial palsy were tested by indirect fluorescence assay, using b. burgdorferi b-31 as antigen. in serum, igg antibody titers of 1:64 to 1:2048 were found in 50% of t ...19892805978
autoreactive t cells in rheumatic disease (1). analysis of growth frequencies and autoreactivity of t cells in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and lyme disease.a limiting dilution system was established in order to estimate frequencies of interleukin-2 (il-2)-responsive, autoreactive and alloreactive t cells in samples of peripheral blood (pbl) and synovial fluid lymphocytes (sfl), from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (ra) and lyme disease, as well as from healthy donors and a patient with osteoarthrosis. the frequencies of il-2-dependent t-cell colony formation were significantly higher in patients with ra and lyme disease (median: 1/287) as compar ...19892787645
[cardiac manifestations of lyme disease. apropos of a case].a new case of heart involvement in lyme's disease is reported. its originality lies in its strictly isolated nature, therefore revealing the disease; in its typical picture of myocardopericarditis combining, in various stages, infra-hissian conduction disorders, bouts of left ventricular insufficiency, pseudoischemic repolarisation disorders and finally a moderate pericardial shift; in the demonstration, during two successive heart explorations by nmr (nuclear magnetic resonance), of a diffuse m ...19892650610

lyme myocarditis diagnosed by indium-111-antimyosin antibody scintigraphy.we report a new case of lyme disease with cardiac manifestations, which has been possible to follow during the long period of 12 years. we have detected the usual ecg abnormalities, and concentric hypertrophic myocardiopathy, by echocardiography. the acute myocarditis was demonstrated by 111in-antimyosin scintigraphy, which showed global myocardial uptake of the tracer, constituting the first report, to our knowledge, of lyme myocarditis diagnosed by this method.19892767084
neurological manifestations of lyme disease and treatments.lyme disease is a multi-systemic infection due to b. burgdorferi, with neurological manifestations observed in its second and third stages. except for the suggestive triad meningitis--radiculoneuritis--facial palsies, the diagnosis is often difficult because of the pleiomorphism of neurological manifestations. these can be localized or diffuse, with central involvement, meningitis or peripheral manifestations. past history, cerebrospinal fluid (csf) examination, immuno-assays for specific antibo ...19892686767

tick-borne diseases.tick-borne diseases have their peak incidence in the spring and summer. the different infections caused by tick vectors have certain geographic locations and unique clinical presentations. the most common tick-transmitted infection is lyme disease. early diagnosis of tick-borne disease is essential so that effective and, in some cases, lifesaving antibiotic therapy can be instituted. preventive measures are simple.19883289344
treatment of late lyme borreliosis--randomised comparison of ceftriaxone and penicillin.23 patients with clinically active late lyme disease were randomly assigned to intravenous treatment with either penicillin or ceftriaxone. of the 10 treated with penicillin, 5 were judged treatment failures; of the 13 who received ceftriaxone, only 1 did not respond. an additional 31 patients were subsequently treated with ceftriaxone 4 g/day (n = 17) or 2 g/day (n = 14); success rates in both groups were comparable to those in the cohort randomised to ceftriaxone. patients unresponsive to ceft ...19882897008

multiple sclerosis is a chronic central nervous system infection by a spirochetal agent.multiple sclerosis (ms) is a chronic central nervous system (cns) infection similar to lyme disease or neurosyphilis in its latency period, pathogenesis, symptoms, histopathology and chronic cns involvement. it does not have as yet a fully identified spirochetal etiological agent. much research and clinical support for this hypothesis was published before 1954 and is based on silver staining of neural lesions, animal isolation of the etiologic agent and the characteristic symptoms and pathogenes ...19883357458
pattern of lyme arthritis in europe: report of 14 cases.fourteen cases of lyme arthritis are reported. the most frequent picture was that of oligoarthritis appearing in that part of the leg where the cutaneous or neurological complications, or both, of lyme disease had developed before the arthritis. in most cases recovery followed a single 10 day course of intravenous (iv) penicillin therapy. arthritis was the presenting feature of lyme disease in three cases.19883355251

treatment of erythema chronicum migrans of lyme disease.between june 1981 and july 1987 the efficacy of antibiotic treatment of 215 patients with erythema chronicum migrans of lyme disease was evaluated in terms of the necessity for retreatment and the prevention of the late manifestations of lyme disease. the principal antibiotics utilized to treat 161 patients through 1986 were varying doses of tetracycline, or penicillin alone or in combination with probenecid. two of 80 patients with a minor form of the illness and 17 of 81 patients with a major ...19883190102

clinical pathologic correlations of lyme disease by stage.lyme disease is capable of producing a wide variety of clinical pathologic conditions and lesions having in common histologic features of collagen-vascular disease. the plasma cell is an omnipotent inflammatory responder in most tissues involved by lyme disease, ranging from relatively acute to lesions that have gone on for years. vascular thickening also seems to be prominent, and in the dermis is accompanied by scleroderma-like collagen expansion. the disease in some ways resembles the respons ...19882847622

seed ticks.seed ticks, the first-stage larvae of hard ticks, are not always recognized. they are tiny (0.6 mm) and have six legs, rather than the eight legs found on nymphal and adult ticks. seed ticks may transmit rocky mountain spotted fever, tularemia, babesiosis and lyme disease. pediculocides are effective in removing the larvae.19873630877
musculoskeletal manifestations of lyme disease in children.lyme disease, caused by a tick-transmitted spirochete, has significant musculoskeletal manifestations in children as well as in adults. a series of 23 children with lyme disease is examined. acute arthritis was present in five cases, with the knee being involved in three of these cases. twelve cases (52%) presented with arthralgias, and 10 cases (43%) presented with myalgias. neurological manifestations were present in 39% of the cases. five cases have demonstrated recurrent polyarthralgias. lym ...20043624462

skin and nail changes in the arthritic foot.the arthritic process is unlikely to be confined to the foot; similarly the cutaneous lesions associated with the arthritic foot are often widespread. careful examination of the skin and nails, particularly the finger nails, may be helpful in the differential diagnosis when the patient presents with a painful foot joint. conversely, certain cutaneous lesions may alert the physician to the possibility of joint disorders presenting at some later date. in this chapter, it is not possible to mention ...19873331326
cutaneous manifestations of neurologic infections in children.neurologic infections in children are frequently accompanied by cutaneous findings that may direct the physician toward the correct diagnosis. in some instances, the appearance of an eruption (such as erythema chronicum migrans and lyme disease) is specific or a rapid bedside diagnostic test (tzanck preparation for herpes simplex) is extremely helpful in sorting out the differential diagnosis of a child's illness. in this article, cutaneous clues to some of the more important childhood infection ...19873306337
