Lymphocytic meningoradiculitis of Bannwarth is often associated with a tick bite and erythema chronicum migrans, and therefore may be a European counterpart of Lyme disease in North America. Of nine patients with lymphocytic meningoradiculitis studied at the Neurologic Clinic in Lund, Sweden, six were found to have elevated antibody titers to the Lyme spirochete. These studies support the conclusion that the two diseases are related and may be overlapping sectors of a larger clinical spectrum caused by one infectious agent.
