Abstract

In Lyme borreliosis, the eye may be involved primarily by inflammation of ocular tissues or secondarily by extraocular manifestations. While ocular symptoms due to conjunctivitis or paresis of the cranial nerves are frequent, intraocular inflammations caused by Borrelia burgdorferi seem to be rare and are difficult to diagnose.
