Lyme disease (borreliosis) is an infectious disease caused by the Borrelia spirochaetes, usually transmitted to humans by the Ixodes ticks. It is manifested by a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms varying according to the time elapsed from the infection. The paper describes orofacial symptoms of the disease in a woman who has suffered from a chronic borreliosis for 3 years. Multiorgan clinical manifestations of borreliosis might occur in the masticatory organ and this fact should be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of pain by medical and dental practitioners.
