To report peripheral retinal vasculitis in a case of Lyme disease. Peripheral retinal vasculitis was seen in a symptom-free patient, and a diagnosis of Lyme disease was made based on clinical, angiographic and laboratory findings. Lyme disease, although rarely encountered, should be taken into consideration when determining the etiology in cases of peripheral retinal vasculitis. (Turk J Ophthalmol 2011; 41: 121-4)
