BACKGROUND Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is potentially altered by iatrogenic blood contamination at the time of sampling due to the addition of blood-associated leukocytes and protein. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to assess whether protein concentration, neutrophil percentage, and the presence of activated macrophages, reactive lymphocytes, or eosinophils in CSF samples with low total nucleated cell concentration (TNCC) are affected by blood contamination or associated with central… CONTINUE READING
