Summary of "Comparison of paired cerebrospinal fluid and serum cell-free mitochondrial and nuclear DNA with copy number and fragment length."

Most studies on cell-free DNA (cfDNA) were only for single body fluids; however, the differences in cfDNA distribution between two body fluids are rarely reported. Hence, in this work, we compared the differences in cfDNA distribution between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum of patients with brain-related diseases.

Cerebrospinal fluid free light kappa and lambda chains in oligoclonal band-negative patients with suspected Multiple Sclerosis.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) free light kappa chains (kappa FLC) may be a more sensitive marker of intrathecal IgG synthesis compared to oligoclonal bands (OCBs). Our aim was to retrospectively determine...

Rapid Diagnosis of Tuberculosis Meningitis by Detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis Cell-Free DNA in Cerebrospinal Fluid.

Tuberculosis meningitis (TBM) is one of the most severe forms of tuberculosis. However, TBM diagnosis is quite challenging due to nonspecific clinical presentation and the paucity of the pathogen in c...

Diagnostic relevance of free light chains in cerebrospinal fluid - The hyperbolic reference range for reliable data interpretation in quotient diagrams.

Free light chains, type kappa (FLC-K), in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were compared to oligoclonal IgG in many studies for sensitive detection of immune reactions in brain. The missing consensus about C...

Cytologic diagnosis of primary pineal germ cell tumor with a yolk sac component, in cerebrospinal fluid.

Intracranial germ cell tumors of the central nervous system are rare. Mixed type germ cell tumors with yolk sac component account for 12% and pure yolk sac tumors for 2%. We report the clinicocytopath...

Comparison of Cerebrospinal Fluid Biomarkers for Differential Diagnosis of Acute Bacterial and Viral Meningitis with Atypical Cerebrospinal Fluid Characteristics.

Several cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers are used to distinguish between acute bacterial meningitis (BM) and viral meningitis (VM). We compared the ability of lactate and glucose (GL) in CSF and t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through a hole through the skull bone most commonly draining from the nose (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID RHINORRHEA) or the ear (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA).

Tubes inserted to create communication between a cerebral ventricle and the internal jugular vein. Their emplacement permits draining of cerebrospinal fluid for relief of hydrocephalus or other condition leading to fluid accumulation in the ventricles.

Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose. Common etiologies include trauma, neoplasms, and prior surgery, although the condition may occur spontaneously. (Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1997 Apr;116(4):442-9)

Proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid, normally albumin and globulin present in the ratio of 8 to 1. Increases in protein levels are of diagnostic value in neurological diseases. (Brain and Bannister's Clinical Neurology, 7th ed, p221)

Manometric pressure of the CEREBROSPINAL FLUID as measured by lumbar, cerebroventricular, or cisternal puncture. Within the cranial cavity it is called INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE.
