Chronic neurologic manifestations of Lyme disease.
Logigian EL1, Kaplan RF, Steere AC.


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2172819

A quote:
At the time of examination, chronic neurologic abnormalities had been present from 3 months to 14 years, usually with little progression. Six months after a two-week course of intravenous ceftriaxone (2 g daily), 17 patients (63 percent) had improvement, 6 (22 percent) had improvement but then relapsed, and 4 (15 percent) had no change in their condition.

Antibiotic therapy of early European Lyme borreliosis and acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans.
Weber K1, Preac-Mursic V, Neubert U, Thurmayr R, Herzer P, Wilske B, Schierz G, Marget W.


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3056202

A quote:
Later extracutaneous manifestations developed in 27% of the patients with erythema migrans and in 47% of the patients with ACA despite antibiotic therapy. We could not prove the superiority of any antibiotic tested in either early or late European Lyme borreliosis.

Will Richard Horowitz Succeed in Convincing Gary Wormser to Adopt his MSIDS Lyme and Does it Matter?

A quote:
Wormser is the lead author of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) 2006 Lyme Guidelines that deny persistent Lyme infection.
Really? (Check the first post in this thread.)

A Critical Appraisal of “Chronic Lyme Disease”

http://fhs.mcmaster.ca/medicine/infecti ... isease.pdf

A quote:
The word “chronic” has been applied to Lyme disease in a wide variety of contexts
and is sometimes used interchangeably with the preferred term “late Lyme disease.”
For example, in Europe, certain late neurologic manifestations of previously untreated
or inadequately treated infection, such as borrelial encephalomyelitis or long-standing
meningitis, have been referred to as “chronic neuroborreliosis” (Table 1).1-3
Dr Wormser (et al) do not deny persistent Lyme infection!

I found this on facebook and I think this is written by av person from France (and this was posted by the US woman that is mentioned in the following thread in this forum: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6291 ):
Lyme borreliosis is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium and transmitted by a tick bite. The controversy relates to the existence or not of chronic forms (that is to say, whose conventional treatments do not overcome) of this disease. Associations have been demanding for several years the recognition of these chronic forms.
I recommend this person to call this treatment failure, relapse or persistent Lyme borreliosis after treatment instead, since chronic (Lyme) borreliosis is synonymous with late Lyme disease (stage 3) in many countries.
