A severe case of seronegative Lyme neuroborreliosis is presented in detail. It is argued that the seronegative subset subsumes individuals most severely affected by LD and that currently promoted laboratory standards of diagnosis fail utterly to detect such cases. Analogy is made to dichotomous disease expression in leprosy which depends upon host T-cell and B-cell response.
