  1. BS: Bannwarth's syndrome (meningopolyradiculitis), CNP: Cerebral nerve palsy (Cranial neuritis), M: Meningitis. 1CSF/serum albumin quotient, 2B.b.-specific antibody index. * = cell count at follow up lumbar puncture (8 days later) showed 70 leucocytes/μl and an increasing antibody index (27.5). + antibody index initially not done, but on repeated lumbar puncture 13 days later, the CSF showed an B.b.-specific antibody index of 9.34 (and cell count of 102/μl). # antibody index at follow up 4 days later 2.1, and 12 days later 4.8 (and cell count of 13, and 17, respectively).
