– A meningeal reaction to bacterial infection in contact with meninges (brain abscess …) translates clinically by the presence of signs of HIC locations of signs, seizures.

The PL is against-indicated (normal glucose level; unaltered PNN)

– At the beginning of a viral infection, cerebrospinal fluid may have a formula predominantly polynuclear.

– Meningitis carcinomatous => hypoglycorachie
