Arch Otolaryngol. 1985;111(1):47-49. doi:10.1001/archotol.1985.00800030081011

• Recently we had the opportunity of treating a boy from the northeastern region of the United States in whom bilateral facial palsies developed. After obtaining a detailed history and performing a thorough physical examination, the findings suggested Lyme disease. We herein discuss our evaluation and treatment of this child as well as review the otolaryngologic manifestations of this rare disease.
