Flashcards in ch 28 CSF Deck (10):
1

CSF: few cells, but there is typically lots of protein.
-yeast in the CSF seen with ag assays

crytococcal (fungal) meningitis

2

CSF: high white count and increased protein, but the glucose is typically normal.

-brain abcess
-Subdural empyema

3

CSF/bloody discharge from nose/ear infection

basal skull fracture

4

CSF: pleocytosis of mononuclear cells (sometimes mixed with neutrophils), elevated protein, normal to moderate reduction of glucose

TB of CNS

5

CSF: White cells, esp neutrophils

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO)

6

increased phosphorylated tau and decreased Aβ in the CSF

Alzheimers Dis

7

Spinal tap: cloudy/purulent CSF under pressure, high protein with low glucose

meningitis

8

CSF: Mildly elevated protein level, moderate pleocytosis, oligoclonal IgG elevated

MS

9

CSF: lymphocytic pleocytosis, moderate protein levels, and normal glucose.
-May initially be neutrophilic

-Acute aseptic viral meningitis
-poliomyelitis

10

CSF: colorless, slightly elevated pressure, elevated protein nml glucose
-Initially has a neutrophilic pleocytosis, cut converts to a lymphocytosis
