Objective: To investigate the clinical features and distribution of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in five kinds of typical pathogenic conditions in order to improve the early diagnosis of intracranial infectious diseases in children.
Methods: A total of 161 pediatric patients with intracranial infection in our hospital from January 2010 to December were selected, and the cerebrospinal fluid examination results were statistical treatment to get valuable diagnostic cases, and its clinical manifestations were retrospective analysis and summary.
Results: In 138 cases valuable diagnosis, 37 cases of viral meningitis in children with lymphocyte reaction and transformed lymphocyte reaction, CSF changes in the light, 27.03% of the total number of patients with tuberculosis, 50 cases of tuberculosis meningitis, 76.1% cases of tuberculosis meningitis in children, 15 showed brain pressure, 100% CSF total number of CSF white cells in acute inflammatory phase and sub-acute inflammatory reaction.
Conclusion: Children with intracranial infection early clinical manifestations are not typical, intracranial infection in children with cerebrospinal fluid cytology visible abnormal changes, changes in different periods and different characteristics of pathogens and disease of CSF examination results of different pathogens caused by intracranial infection in children with intracranial infection diagnosis, the evolution of the disease, treatment and prognosis has important reference value.Author(s): Li-Cheng H, Chao J, Xiao-Qing W, Jing-Yun Gao
