I am working on a patient that is a 66 year old male. He presents with headache, fatigue, forgetfulness, subtle behavior changes, disequilibrium, double vision and a wide-based gait. I know that it is an infectious disease but am having trouble diagnosing him. Upon examination he presents normal however there is a slight impairment in his neurological status, any suggestions? Also, it was thought that he had Lyme Disease and was therefore treated with penicillin and tetracycline, however his symptoms continued.
