Ophthalmic manifestations in Lyme borreliosis. A review

Bergloff, Jutta, Gasser, Robert, & Feigl, Beatrix (1994) Ophthalmic manifestations in Lyme borreliosis. A review. Journal Of Neuro-Ophthalmology, 14(1), pp. 15-20.


Lyme borreliosis is an emerging tick-borne spirochetal infection characterized by a broad variety of symptoms, ranging from neurologic disorders and different skin manifestations to cardiac symptoms. Many ocular and neuro-ophthalmic symptoms have recently been attributed to Lyme disease. Especially in endemic areas ophthalmologists need to be aware of Borrelia burgdorferi as a possible causal agent. The aim of this paper is to present a short review of the literature of ophthalmic disorders resulting from Borrelia burgdorferi infections.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
