The Bacteriology of the Cerebro-Spinal Fluid in General Paralysis of the Insane

  • W. Ford Robertson (a1) and R. Dods Brown (a2)
Extract

In recent years very numerous observers have endeavoured to ascertain if, in cases of general paralysis, micro-organisms can be demonstrated in the cerebro-spinal fluid withdrawn by means of lumbar puncture during life. All, with one or two exceptions, have obtained negative results, both from direct examination of the centrifuge deposit and from cultures, and the very general conclusion has consequently been formed that no micro-organisms are present.
