Abstract

Two cases of Borrelia lymphocytoma are reported. The skin lesions were located on the ear margin or lobe. They were swollen, red and painful on touching. Serum titres of antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi were elevated in both cases. Spirochaetal cultures from skin biopsies taken from the lesions were unsuccessful. Both patients responded very well to antibiotic treatment.
