European Lyme borreliosis commonly presents with neurological complications such as mono-neuritis multiplex, radiculopathy, and encephalopathy. This chapter describes a case of Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) accompanied by the epidemiology, tick-borne transmission, diagnosis, and management of the condition. A discussion on the range of clinical presentations that are compatible with acute LNB and treatment outcomes of LNB follows, together with a discussion of late LNB or post-Lyme syndrome.
