Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

A 25-year-old man with acute transverse myelitis and Lyme disease.

Dr. Cameron feels that the best way to get to know Lyme disease is through reviewing actual cases. In this Inside Lyme Podcast episode, he will be discussing a 25-year-old man with transverse myelitis and Lyme disease.

Dumic and colleague first discussed this case in the journal IDCases in 2019.

“A previously healthy 25-year-old man presented with inability to urinate and frequent falls associated with bilateral lower extremity weakness and numbness.” wrote the authors.

His condition worsened. He began to fall due to the weakness of both legs and problems with his gait. His MRI revealed myelitis.  His spinal tap revealed pleocytosis consistent with Lyme disease.

The man’s motor, sensory, and autonomic dysfunction were typical of acute transverse myelitis. He was diagnosed with acute transverse myelitis and Lyme disease.

You can hear more about these cases through his blogs, social media, and YouTube. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up with these cases.
