Abstract

Article abstract

The authors performed a clinical and serologic follow-up study after 4.2 ± 1.2 years in 44 patients with clinical signs of neuroborreliosis and specific intrathecal antibody production. All patients had been treated with ceftriaxone 2 g/day for 10 days. Although neurologic deficits decreased significantly, more than half the patients had unspecific complaints resembling a chronic fatigue syndrome and showed persisting positive immunoglobulin M serum titers for Borrelia in the Western blot analysis.
