We describe a patient with a history of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation complicated by chronic graft-versus-host disease who developed painful meningoradiculitis and myositis due to Lyme borreliosis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of such an infection occurring after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the United States.
