Incidence of Lyme disease is increasing in North America, and the disease has a wide range of symptoms. Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) is 1 presentation and can present with early or late manifestations; clinicians should maintain a high index of suspicion and begin empiric treatment in individuals with a clinical syndrome consistent with LNB. Early LNB manifestations have onset within 6 months of infection and include cranial and peripheral neuropathy, radiculitis, and aseptic meningitis; late LNB encompasses a chronic encephalomyelitis.
