Lyme Disease Presenting as Persistent Severe Photophobia
Long-term photophobia in children that has no obvious cause is uncommon and presents a diagnostic dilemma. It may produce significant discomfort and result in social isolation and school absence. We present the case of a 5-year-old boy who presented with chronic photophobia due to interstitial keratitis that was the result of Lyme disease.
