Abstract

A case of a 65-year-old man, who used to work as a forester for many years, with end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy and subsequent heart transplantation is described. Eight years later the diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis was established, which was the likely cause of cardiac disease in this patient.
