  1. The table shows the CSF parameters of the basic and special analyses at different time points during the course of the patient’s disease (1: before treatment at diagnostic lumbar puncture (LP), 2: 7 days post-treatment, 3: 12 days post-treatment). L/M/G/P: lymphocytes/monocytes/granulocytes/plasma cells, B.b.: Borrelia burgdorferi, AI: antibody index, n.d.: not detectable, pos.: positive, neg.: negative
