 REPOST-Nervous system borreliosis with pseudo-lymphoma cells in cerebrospinal fluid]

Let's hope a doctor confronted with a siomilar case would know to check for
Lyme disease !

protein and decreased glucose levels, an elevated number of large atypical

Abstract:
We report the case of a 44-year-old woman, who experienced acute back pains,
leg paraesthesia, and diplopia. Analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid revealed,
in addition to increased protein and decreased glucose levels, an elevated
number of large atypical cells, resembling lymphoma cells. Magnetic resonance
imaging of the brain and spine was normal. High levels of antibodies against
Borrelia burgdorferi were found in both serum and cerebrospinal fluid. The
patient completely recovered with ceftriaxone therapy.
