Diagnosis of infections of the central nervous system is accomplished

by demonstrating the presence of intrathecally-produced specific

antibody. Interpretation of results may be complicated by low antibody

levels found in CSF, passive transfer of antibody from blood, and

contaminaton via bloody taps. The interpretation of CSF results must

consider CSF-serum antibody ratios to the infectious agent.
