Dear All, Please enlighten me on how to come to a conclusion on following CSF report 30 weeker, LP done on day 3 of starting antibiotics prophylactically for prematurity. Only indication was to do a LP was positive blood culture for Group B strep and high CRP. Infant didn't have signs of Meningitis. CSF report- RBC 15/mm3 WBC 7/mm3 (Neutrophils 3, Lymphocytes 4) Protein 40mg/dl CSF sugar 65mg/dl RBS 75mg/dl CSF Antigen/culture both Negative My concern mostly is 3 neutrophils, Would you consider this LP as positive and please comment on normal differential counts of WBC in p
