68 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid White Blood Cells Increased

  • CINCA Syndrome

    Results of cerebrospinal fluid analysis in most patients showed increased numbers of white blood cells but without evidence of infection.[jamanetwork.com] Meningitis may cause inflammatory or infectious optic disc swelling as a result of increased intracranial pressure or optic disc perineuritis. 25 Cerebrospinal fluid was under[jamanetwork.com]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Several detection methods being developed for Alzheimer disease include blood tests to measure increased expression of a protein present in certain white blood cells and positron[britannica.com] […] emission tomography to detect increased levels of an enzyme in cerebrospinal fluid.[britannica.com]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) usually shows an increase in white blood cells.[sickkids.ca]

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis revealed lymphocytic pleocytosis (54 white blood cells per microlitre with 100% lymphocytes), increased protein (65 mg/dl) and positive[academic.oup.com]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    […] number of monocytes in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) compared with seronegative cases.(40) Glucose and protein concentrations and the total white blood cell counts were similar[hivinsite.ucsf.edu] […] pneumococcal disease have been reported to have severe infection.(39) A single retrospective study reported that HIV-1 seropositive patients with pneumococcal meningitis had an increased[hivinsite.ucsf.edu]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    cells, white blood cells, and plasma into the hematoma cavity.[en.wikipedia.org] Traumatic tearing of the arachnoid mater also causes leakage of cerebrospinal fluid into the hematoma cavity, increasing the size of the hematoma over time.[en.wikipedia.org] […] resulting inflammation leads to new membrane formation through fibrosis and produces fragile and leaky blood vessels through angiogenesis, permitting the leakage of red blood[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Meningitis

    New fever and increased CSF white blood cell count in patients with external ventricular drains could be suggestive of infection (weak, low).[idsociety.org] Cerebrospinal Fluid Drains Recommendations New or worsening altered mental status in patients with external ventricular drains is suggestive of infection (weak, low).[idsociety.org]

  • Coma

    Cerebrospinal fluid analysis at the local hospital revealed increased protein with a slightly elevated white blood cell count.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    For the purpose of our study, we considered as normal cerebrospinal fluid samples that had only increased white blood cell counts but normal red blood cell counts and no xanthochromia[bmj.com] fluid or xanthochromia in any tube of cerebrospinal fluid collected considered abnormal.[bmj.com] […] results were reported according to the routine laboratory analysis at each site, with red cell counts 1 10 6 /L (equivalent to n/mm 3 or n/µL)in the final tested tube of cerebrospinal[bmj.com]

  • Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    Unfavorable outcomes are signaled by the presence of blasts and red blood cells, but not of increased white blood cells numbers in the cerebrospinal fluid.[symptoma.com]
