INTRODUCTION: Lyme disease is a systemic illness caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi which utilizes the Ixodes tick as its vector. Cardiac manifestations are one of the most variable and often can be fatal and occur in 4-10% of untreated cases of Lyme disease. The most common manifestation is first and second-degree heart block, while third degree heart block is a more serious, and less common phenomenon. Fortunately, this illness is generally reversible when the diagnosis is made and early treatment is initiated.
