Serologic tests for the Lyme spirochete are useful in circumstances of suspected infection of the central nervous system with this agent. The utility of serum serologic tests for viruses is limited by the time required to obtain results, but they are useful in determining retrospectively the source of meningitis or encephalitis. More rapid tests that use the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in CSF, which amplifies viral DNA fragments, are now widely available for diag­ nosis, particularly for herpesviruses, cytomegalovirus, and JC virus.
