Method and possibilities of the in vivo CSF assessment of a cerebral endothelial destruction in patients with enteroviral meningitis

Cover Page

Abstract

With the use of expert immunohysto/cytochemical methods in 30 patients with enteroviral serous meningitis and cyclic noncomplicated disease course, the presence of circulating endothelial cells (CEC) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was shown. The CSF CEC quantity was determined in the acute period of illness. It was confirmed the possibility for quantitative CEC detection in smears stained with hematoxylin. CEC in the CSF of hernioplastic patients operated under epidural anesthesia were not detected.
