Neurology. 1998 Nov;51,5:1489-91. Comment in: Neurology. 1999 Sep 11;53,4:895-6. Clinical and serologic follow-up in patients with neuroborreliosis. Treib J, Fernandez A, Haass A, Grauer MT, Holzer G, Woessner R. Department of Neurology, University of the Saarland, Homburg, Germany. 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 53patients 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
