Abstract

Lyme disease is an inflammatory disorder caused by infection with Borrelia burgdorferi. In this report a rare case of a girl surviving intrauterine Lyme disease, who subsequently developed triventricular hydrocephalus and aquaductus cerebri stenosis was presented. In earlier cases modern imaging techniques have not been used. In our patient, intrauterine magnetic resonance imaging technique has been helpful in the diagnosis and management of the therapy.
