Abstract

To determine how often Slovenian children with acute peripheral facial palsy are infected with Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, 52 patients with peripheral facial palsy were included in this prospective clinical study. According to case definitions, the diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis was established in 56% of those patients. The diagnosis was confirmed in 41%, probable in 28%, and possible in 31% of patients.
