Lyme disease and Multiple Sclerosis have very similar symptoms, making their correct diagnosis sometimes difficult. For this reason, we propose the differential diagnosis service of the two pathologies through a multidisciplinary approach – neurology and infectious diseases.

We provide the patients with different packages of different complexity:

1. Differential Diagnostic Basic Package – to identify the pathology correctly:

  • multidisciplinary consultation, neurology and infectious diseases;
  • blood test set (Western blot serology);
  • Test interpretation.

2. Lyme Disease Confirmation Package – to confirm the pathology and severity of the disease:

  • the basic package;
  • the lumbar puncture;
  • a set of assays from cerebrospinal fluid (intrathecal anti-borrelia antibodies and CSF biochemistry tests);
  • interpretation of the tests.

3. Multiple Sclerosis Confirmation Package – to confirm the pathology and severity of the disease*:

  • the basic package;
  • the lumbar puncture;
  • set of cerebrospinal fluid analysis (immunoglobulin index and oligoclonal bands);
  • interpretation of the analysis.

* In order to confirm the condition, it is necessary to perform a MRI investigation with a contrast substance. This can be done through Neuroaxis, being charged separately

4. Complete Lyme Disease Package:

  • the Lyme disease confirmation package;
  • guidance for treatment in hospital;
  • lumbar puncture after the completion of treatment;
  • set of assays from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF biochemistry);
  • interpretation of the test;
  • The infectious diseases consultation and final report.

5. Full Multiple Sclerosis Package:

  • Multiple Sclerosis Confirmation Package
  • medical report for enrollment in the National Program;
  • assistance with registration in the National Program **;
  • recording in the Neuroaxis monitoring system of patients with multiple sclerosis.

** For enrolling in the National Program it is necessary to perform a usual biological balance (common blood tests) containing the following: Blood count, ESR, CRP, TGO, TGP, urea, creatinine, hepatitis B and C, HIV, separate from the package.

The duration of the multidisciplinary consultation is of 60-90 minutes.
