Abstract

Lyme disease is a vector-borne multisystem inflammatory disease caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. This disease is frequently seen in North America and to a lesser degree in Europe. However, its presence in England is uncommon and we present a case in which the patient developed a palsy of the common peroneal nerve.
