Lymphozytoma und Neuroborreliosis

Lymphocytoma - like erythema migrans - belongs to the first stage of a borrelia infection and manifests itself as intensive reddening which appears particularly in places where expansion is no longer possible such as ear lobe, nose, navel, nipple, scrotum.

  • Lymphozytoma und facial paralysis

Facial paralysis, especially peripheral facial paralysis, is not that rare. Formerly the appearance of facial paralysis was regarded as 'ideopathic', i.e. arising without a tangible cause. Since then it has become apparent that facial paralysis in children is a possible consequence of a borrelia infection. Facial paralysis belongs to stage 3 (neuroborreliosis). All stages of a borrelia infection need consistent treatment with antibiotics.
