    Applicable To

Approximate Synonyms
  • Cranial neuritis due to lyme disease
  • Lyme cranial neuritis
  • Lyme meningoencephalitis
  • Lyme polyneuropathy
  • Meningoencephalitis due to lyme disease
  • Polyneuropathy due to lyme disease
Clinical Information
  • A nerve disease where many peripheral nerves are affected
  • An inflammatory process involving the brain (encephalitis) and meninges (meningitis), most often produced by pathogenic organisms which invade the central nervous system, and occasionally by toxins, autoimmune disorders, and other conditions.
  • Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. Proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. Axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.
