Lyme neuroborreliosis in children: Report of nine cases and a review of the literature.

We report nine cases of pediatric neuroborreliosis collected by the National Observatory of Pediatric Bacterial Meningitis in France between 2001 and 2012. The nine children, aged 4-13 years, were identified in northern and eastern France and had the following clinical features: meningeal irritation alone or with facial palsy, or isolated facial palsy. All cases showed anti-Borrelia antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid or serum, or with a positive Borrelia PCR in the CSF. The outcome was favorable in all cases after a 2- to 3-week course of third-generation cephalosporin. On the basis of these nine pediatric cases, this study provides an update on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic strategy, and treatment of neuroborreliosis, with insight into the specific features of pediatric neuroborreliosis and the difficulties encountered in the diagnosis of this infection.

Resumo O fil ósofo francês Michel Foucault discute a psicanálise através de seu método arqueológico da constituição dos saberes na modernidade. A análise foucaultiana revela uma reestruturação crítica dos saberes, que parte do estudo das estruturas sociais, atribuindo a estas um caráter arbitrário e cerceador. Neste ponto, o autor se detém no modo como a psicanálise freudiana pensa a dinâmica das relações sociais ao construir uma linguagem. Contudo, Foucault encontra nesta proposta um dom&iacut...
