306 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Hydrocephalus-cont. • Chronic hydrocephalus may develop weeks to months after SAH and present as normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) manifested by gait difficulty, incontinence[slideshare.net] […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] improve when treated for hydrocephalus (do not lower pressure to less than 15 mm Hg, however).[openanesthesia.org]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    After medication with meropenem was started, the clinical symptoms completely disappeared, and the abnormalities on cerebrospinal fluid examination resolved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lumbar puncture (LP) See separate articles Lumbar Puncture and Cerebrospinal Fluid for normal values and interpretation of abnormal CSF findings.[patient.info] Ampicillin was administered, but headache and pyrexia persisted for 2 weeks, and on cerebrospinal fluid examination, the proliferation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes had[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningeal Tuberculosis

    A spinal tap may also be done to establish the diagnosis of normal pressure hydrocephalus.[nlm.nih.gov] […] finding of cerebrospinal fluid.[tandurust.com] Inhalation anthrax Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) Pituitary tumor Reye syndrome Risks of lumbar puncture include: Bleeding into the spinal canal or around the brain[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in bacterial meningitis include a markedly increased opening pressure ( 180 mm H 2 O), increased presence of white blood cells (normal: 0[path.upmc.edu] S pneumoniae was isolated from both blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in 19 (76%) children.[caribbean.scielo.org] Cerebrospinal fluid examination Of the 104 previously well children with available records, 91 (87%) had an LP performed, 57 (63%) prior to parenteral antibiotics and 33 ([adc.bmj.com]

  • Cryptococcal Meningitis

    In this case, initial head CT scan was normal but unusually high protein level in CSF prompted a repeat CT scan 5 days later that showed noncommunicating hydrocephalus.[shmabstracts.com] The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) indices (protein and glucose) were normal in 4 cases, whereas they were mildly abnormal in the other 2 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebrospinal fluid India ink staining was positive, and culture yielded Cryptococcus neoformans. Cryptococcus meningitis was diagnosed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Listerial Meningitis

    Blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF; obtained by lumbar puncture [LP]) were collected prior to administration of antimicrobials and submitted for culture and laboratory studies[jcm.asm.org] Analysis of his cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) showed leucocytosis, high protein concentration, and low glucose level with a decreased CSF/serum glucose ratio ( Table 1 ).[scielo.br] CSF cellular abnormalities are usually not characteristic, and diagnosis based on the detection of L. monocytogenes growth in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) requires usually 24[jcm.asm.org]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    A patient with fatal recurrent meningococcal meningitis is described. Detailed complement and immunological investigation revealed a combined deficiency of C8 and anti-meningococcal antibody. An inability to make anti-meningococcal antibody in C8 deficient patients has not been previously reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptospiral Meningitis

    Typical cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities consisted of a mildly elevated leukocyte count (median 206 leukocytes/mm3, range 6-2072) with a lymphocytic predominance (median[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thirty-nine cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from patients presenting with meningeal abnormalities, predominance of lymphocytes and negative results by traditional microbiological[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemophilus Meningitis

AU - Green, Michael AU - Rowley, Anne H.[scholars.northwestern.edu] Hydrocephalus Hydrocephalus is an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain.[comomeningitis.org] {72a9cff10cf7459a9250a2e9872e5d92, title "Absent or minimal cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in haemophilus influenzae meningitis", abstract "A case of Haemophilus influenzae[scholars.northwestern.edu]
