Patient with Chronic Lyme Disease and Recurrent Relapses, Maintained in Complete Remission by Low Doses of Metronidazole

Author(s): Alexis Lacout, Pierre Yves Marcy, Christian Perronne

We report herein the case of a patient presenting with a chronic form of Lyme disease. The statement of the chronic form of Lyme disease is definitely corroborated by known and published biological mechanisms and by the report of cases of successive remissions and relapses on the introduction and cessation of antibiotics. In the present case, prolonged clinical remission was achieved with very low doses of metronidazole (500 mg once a week)
