Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tests were positive: the fluid was turbid, glycorrhachia was 141 mg/dl (normal range, 50-80 mg/dl), proteinorrachia was normal, and the CSF white cell count was 135/UI (normal range, 0-5/UI) with a left shift (90% neutrophils and 10% lymphocytes).
Some clinical signs that have been most commonly identified as factors determining prognosis in previous studies were evaluated in isolation: vomiting, convulsions, dyspnea, fever, headache and coma; initial liquor cell count; initial glycorrhachia; initial proteinorrhachia; identification of etiological agent by Gram or culture; bacterial isolate (etiological agent) from blood, from liquor or both; hemoglobinemia on admission; leucometry of peripheral blood on admission; platelet count in peripheral blood on admission; initial antibiotic regimen and previous use of antibiotics.
The mean glycorrhachia among cases was 36.8mg/dl compared to 34.6mg/dl (p = 0.66) in the control group.
