Abstract

Carditis is a common manifestation of adult patients with Lyme disease affecting 4-10% of Lyme patients in the United States. However, children with Lyme disease rarely present with acute carditis. The management of pediatric patients with complete heart block (CHB) secondary to Lyme carditis has not been well described. We report the acute management of 2 pediatric patients that presented in CHB secondary to Lyme disease.
