520    The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is an invaluable diagnostic 
       tool in clinical neurology, not only in the evaluation of 
       inflammatory, degenerative, and malignant diseases of the 
       nervous system, but also in the diagnosis of all forms of 
       cerebral and subarachnoidal bleedings. The CSF can be 
       easily obtained by lumbar puncture and a set of basic 
       analyses can be conducted using relatively simple 
       laboratory methods. By combining different CSF parameters,
       a wide range of diagnostic entities can be identified. 
       However, properly interpreting the test results requires a
       high level of expertise and cannot be achieved by just 
       reporting on individual analytic values. This book covers 
       essential aspects of cerebrospinal fluid analysis and its 
       use in the diagnosis of common neurological diseases. The 
       first part addresses preclinical aspects such as the 
       history of CSF, as well as the anatomical, physiological, 
       and biological background of this valuable fluid. In 
       addition, CSF collection, its preanalytical and 
       methodological implications, and the increasing number of 
       disease-specific markers in CSF are discussed in detail. 
       Lastly, CSF analyses are put into context with clinical 
       syndromes, demonstrating their diagnostic value in 
       neurological clinical practice. Cerebrospinal Fluid in 
       Clinical Neurology helps readers understand the 
       preanalytical and analytical aspects of CSF diagnostics 
       and offers a valuable reference guide for interpreting CSF
       results during the clinical work-up for neurological 
       patients. ℗ℓ
