Although calculation of the cerebrospinal fluid to serum glucose ratio is widely recommended as a way to identify pathologic hypoglycorrhachia, few data are available to document its accuracy. In order to provide a better basis for interpretation of this quotient, simultaneous cerebrospinal fluid and serum glucose concentrations from patients with diabetes mellitus and noninflammatory cerebrospinal fluid and patients with acute bacterial meningitis were compared.
