Abstract

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis is valuable in the diagnostics of inflammatory diseases (bacterial, viral, fungal and protozoal) of the central nervous system (CNS). CSF examination is indicated in every patient with nervous tissue degeneration, demyelinating diseases, neoplasia. Useful information can be expected from CSF analysis in polyneuro-pathies, as well. CSF analysis is not recommended in patients with metabolic abnormalities, obvious disc diseases, or trauma causing neurological signs. The procedure for obtaining CSF is safe and relatively simple with proper technique. History, physical examination and detailed neurological examination are essential elements in reaching a diagnosis of nervous system disease. CSF evaluation is a useful adjunct to the interpretation of these examinations, but rarely is diagnostic per se. In this paper the authors review the literature, describe the methodology for CSF collection and examination, and discuss abnormalities seen in certain CNS diseases.
