A Tale of Two Syndromes: Lyme Disease Preceding Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
The pathogenesis of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is poorly understood. However, it has been suggested that altered immune activity or denervation of the autonomic system following illness may be an important trigger. Patients infected with Lyme disease have a small incidence of post‐Lyme disease syndrome that share similar characteristics to POTS. We report a short series of two women who present with persistent symptoms of orthostatic intolerance consistent with POTS after treated Lyme disease.
