Although echocardiography does not necessarily detect pathognomonic findings in patients with Lyme carditis, it provides a wealth of information about myocardial function. It can also identify pericardial involvement. Cardiac tissue characteristics revealed by high-resolution transesophageal echocardiography may become more clinically useful in evaluating infiltration of the atrioventricular node, a common complication of Lyme disease.
