Karadag, B; Spieker, L E; Schwitter, J; Ruschitzka, F; Lüscher, T F; Noll, G; Corti, R (2004). Lyme carditis: restitutio ad integrum documented by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Cardiology in Review, 12(4):185-187.

Abstract

Lyme disease is a tickborne illness that could cause, weeks to months later, complications involving the joints, central nervous system, and cardiovascular system. We report a case of cardiac manifestation with transitory higher degree atrioventricular block and dysfunction of the left ventricle. Complete resolution without signs of myocardial scar is demonstrated by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
