  > or = 1:1 Antibody Detected

           

Diagnosis of infections of the central nervous system is

accomplished by demonstrating the presence of intra-

thecally-produced specific antibody.  Interpretation of

results may be complicated by low antibody levels found in

CSF, passive transfer of antibody from blood, and contamin-

ation via bloody taps.  The interpretation of CSF results

must consider CSF-serum antibody ratios to the infectious

agent.
