Children with Lyme meningitis are often treated with intravenous ceftriaxone although oral doxycycline may be effective. Parents were surveyed after observing a video describing a hypothetical Lyme meningitis treatment trial. Eighty-four of 102 (82%) would consent to their child participating. Parents would accept 2 additional days of symptoms (non-inferiority margin) with doxycycline even if ceftriaxone hastened symptom resolution.
