Age-specific reference values for cerebrospinal fluid protein concentration in neonates and young infants.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein values decline over the first few months of life as the infant's blood-CSF barrier matures. However, published studies differ in the reported rate, timing, and magnitude of this decline. OBJECTIVE To quantify the age-related changes in CSF protein concentration and to determine accurate, age-specific reference… (More)
