21 Possible Causes for Turbid Cerebrospinal Fluid

  • Listeria Meningitis

    A lumbar puncture was performed, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was turbid in appearance.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was turbid on gross appearance. It showed a protein of 720 mg/dL and a sugar of 49 mg/dL (the concurrent blood sugar was 251 mg/dL).[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Meningitis

    The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was turbid, with polymorphonuclear pleocytosis of 1400 cells/mm 3 . protein and glucose were 249 mg/dl and 39 mg/dl, respectively.[] Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) 12. 6- Cell count: Normal 0-5 cells /mm3 Markedly increased in bacterial tuberculous and viral accordingly 7- Glucose measurement[] Appearance: clear or turbid 3. Wet Mount 4. Gram Stain for bacteria. 5. Geimsa stain for Presence of neutrophils or lymphocytes or R.B.C.s.[]

  • Gradenigo's Syndrome

    Turbid cerebrospinal fluid could be drained. Follow-up could not be done as the patient refused treatment and was discharged against medical advice.[]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare multisystem autoimmune disease. Though meningitis in RP is not common, some cases with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pleocytosis of the lymphocyte cells have been reported. Of the 18 previously reported cases, two cases demonstrated pleocytosis of polymorphonuclear leukocytes[…][]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    A case report of a listeria meningitis 5 days after diagnosis of meningococcal meningitis in a immunocompetent child of 2 years is presented. The infection occurred during hospital admission. Culture results of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were confirmed by a listeria-specific polymerase chain reaction in 2 CSF specimens.[…][]

  • Tularemia Meningitis

    Tularemia meningitis is a distinctly rare entity with only 14 cases reported in the literature, half of which occurred prior to 1950. In this case we provide the first description of cerebral microabscesses which occurred as a complication of tularemia meningitis.[]

  • Leptospiral Meningitis

    Leptospirosis is a widespread zoonotic disease characterised by headache and fever. These symptoms are often suggestive of meningitis, but only a proportion of patients have leptospiral meningitis. We report episodes of leptospiral meningitis in patients admitted to a tertiary referral centre in the Netherlands, in[…][]

  • Streptococcus Pneumoniae

    A lumbar puncture was performed that showed pink, turbid cerebrospinal fluid containing high levels of protein and abundant neutrophils and erythrocytes, as well as gram-positive[]

  • Hemophilus Meningitis

    Eleven cases of Hemophilus meningitis seen in the last year are reported. Three were H. parainfluenzae and eight were H. influenzae. The number of patients is small but probably indicates that there is little difference in the clinical or laboratory data in meningitis caused by these two organisms. The children with H.[…][]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    To demonstrate a rare but potential mechanism of quadriplegia in a patient with fulminant pneumococcal meningitis complicated by severe intracranial hypertension. Case report. Intensive care unit. A 21-year-old man who presented with 3 days of headache, combativeness, and fever. Antibiotics and steroids were[…][]
