Neuroborreliosis frequently occurs in endemic areas, whereas encephalomyelitis is uncommon. Treatment consists classically of 2 to 4 weeks of recommended antimicrobial agents with a generally good outcome. A severe case is reported combining an encephalomyelitis with an axonal polyneuropathy. Clinical improvement was observed only with the use of prolonged high dose of 2 antimicrobial agents combined with steroids.
