Acute Transverse Myelitis: CSF Determinants In The Differential Diagnostics (P5.180)

CONCLUSIONS: If CSF yields marked pleocytosis or raised protein content, the MS-etiology for ATM is improbable. If intrathecal IgG synthesis is detected in otherwise normal CSF, the MS-etiology is very probable. In our study, the combination of the results of CSF protein concentration and IgG index was extremely valuable: all patients having normal protein level with elevated IgG index were diagnosed with MS or were at high risk for this disease.Study Supported by:Disclosure: Dr. Kupila has nothing to disclose. Dr. Jaakonmäki has nothing to disclose. Dr. Huhtala has nothing to disclose. Dr. Airas has nothing to disclose. (Source: Neurology)
