Traumatic LP

Recommended Posts

How do you interpret traumatic LP in a neonate with suspected meningitis? If you re-adjust number of WBC then how do you do it? Please post any reference if you have any. Thanks.

IN some NICUs,If  WBC in a neonate with suspected meningitis =  A,traumatic LP result in RBC  number in CSF  = B,  the re-adjust number of WBC  = A — B/400(B/500)

Recent studies says it is no more recommended to do corrected wbc in bloody csf samples,and it is better to rely on csf culture , antigen detection tests  and gram stain
