Diagnosis of infections of the central nervous system can
be accomplished by demonstrating the presence of intrathecally-
produced specific antibody. However, interpretation of
results is complicated by low antibody levels found in CSF,
passive transfer of antibody from blood, and contamination
via bloody taps.
