Neuroborréliose, méningo-encéphalite verno-estivale et neurosyphilis

Kuntzer, Thierry
Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2013, vol. 9, no. 384, p. 922-928
Abstract Infections affecting frequently the nervous system include Lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis and syphilis. These three most dreaded neuro-infectious diseases observed in Switzerland are discussed, based on diagnostic criteria, screening testing, and treatments modalities. Neuroborreliosis and neurosyphilis are bacterial infectious diseases treatable by antibiotics, whereas the treatment of tick-borne encephalitis, a viral disease, is only based on preventive vaccination.
