    Abstract

    The neurological complications of Borrelia burgdorferi infection have only recently been recognised in the United Kingdom. Eight cases are reported which were all contracted in the New Forest area of Hampshire. The majority of patients had Bannwarth's syndrome though meningism and parenchymal lesions also occurred. All patients made a virtually complete neurological recovery in contrast to some patients with Lyme disease.
