OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze lymphocyte subset numbers in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from patients with tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and acute neuroborreliosis. METHODS CSF lymphocyte subsets were enumerated in 42 TBE and nine neuroborreliosis patients using flow cytometry. RESULTS The CSF numbers of CD4+, CD8+, HLA-DR+ and total-T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and NK cells were all greater in neuroborreliosis patients than in TBE patients. Neuroborreliosis patients showed… CONTINUE READING
