Abstract

Lyme borreliosis is a common infectious disease that can affect myocardial muscle or the central nervous system if not treated at an early stage. Here we report a unique case of an atypical location of lymphocytoma cutis in a 3-year-old boy. Histologic and immunohistochemical analysis revealed the correct diagnosis.
