SAH was diagnosed by computed tomographic (CT) scan or lumbar puncture that was positive for xanthochromia in suspected cases.
The results of the cerebral spinal fluid analysis were inconclusive; no malignant cells were found on cytology and there was no evidence of infection or xanthochromia.
Of these cases, CSF xanthochromia was seen in 1case and in the remaining cases, CSF was normal.
Such dilation may also cause diapedesis of cells and proteins into the subarachnoid space, explaining the reticulocytes, xanthochromia, mononuclear pleocytosis and increased protein found in CSF from patients with SIH or ICH.
23) The camomile is an effective cure for Xanthochromia.
These include elevated opening pressure of the lumbar puncture, the presence of red blood cells (RBCs) in the CSF, and the presence of xanthochromia in CSF.
No plasma abnormalities such as haemolysis, turbidity, chylosis, xanthochromia or jaundice were seen on visual inspection.
It is often difficult if not impossible to distinguish between SAH and TLP (1, 2) by available CSF tests such as (a) measurement of xanthochromia of the supernatant after centrifugation, (b) counting of erythrocytes in the first and last tubes of collected CSF, or (c) searching of CSF microscopically for crenated erythrocytes (3-5).
Lumbar puncture to detect red blood cells acutely or xanthochromia subacutely may be necessary when the clinical history is convincing and a CT scan is negative.
CSF analysis was once again normal with an opening pressure of 16 cm and no xanthochromia.
