Through Immunoblotting, the following features were found in serum: 5 IgG and 2 IgM bands for the first case; 7 IgG and 2 IgM bands for the second; and 5 IgG and 6 IgM bands for the third. In the latter, presence fo specific antibodies was searched in liquor, due to lymphomonocitary meningitis occurrence, and one IgM band was detected.
