Les manifestations psychiatriques des borrélioses de Lyme : des enjeux majeurs au cœur d'une médecine rationnelle et relationnelle

Abstract : Introduction: Lyme disease could generate a rich persistent non-specific symptomatology that causes intense suffering. At the centre of sustained attention, it threatens the doctor-patient relationship. Material and method: The objective of this thesis is to investigate the potential link between Lyme disease and the most commonly reported psychiatric manifestations. For this purpose, we carry out a literature review on pubmed. Results: Despite the heterogeneity of the results of the 87 articles selected, there is nevertheless a higher prevalence of anxiety depression and cognitive disorders in late and persistent forms of Lyme disease, without suicidal excess mortality. Quality of life is impaired in the persistent forms of Lyme disease. On the other hand, psychotic symptoms mainly concern only reported cases. Conclusion: The psychological symptomatology found essentially reflects a persistent form of Lyme disease currently at the heart of the scientific and political debate. The current challenges are equal to the suffering of patients and the reconstruction of a doctor-patient relationship weakened by the vulnerability of patients is the crucial objective of the future specialized consultation centres, which will have to combine relational and scientific knowledge.
