Fig. 1 Left: neutrophilic granulocytes in bacterial meningitis with marked hypersegmentation. Right: eosinophilic granulocytes with varying degrees of segmentation, from ventricular CSF. Center: an activated monocyte and a lymphocyte. 23 Cytoplasmic basophilia is not a reliable criterion for the identification of activated lymphocytes or plasma cells, for two reasons. On the one hand, on immunocytochemical staining some lymphocytes lacking this feature will exhibit marked immunoglobulin synthesis.

10. In nonpurulent bacterial infections, an exclusively granulocytic phase is seen rarely, if ever. In the early stage of neurotuberculosis, granulocytes may indeed be the predominant cell type in the CSF, but they represent a diminishing percentage of CSF leukocytes as the treatment takes effect. For a long time thereafter, a mixed picture prevails, in which lymphocytes are often the main cell type, with more than 5 % activated lymphocytes and plasma cells. 16. In neuroborreliosis, the granulocyte fraction in CSF from the initial lumbar puncture is usually very low.

It occurs when the blood–brain and blood–CSF barriers are invaded by pathogenic organisms of practically any type, but its quantitative and temporal course varies, depending on the organism. , viral meningitis, the polynuclear phase may have ended by the time the initial diagnostic lumbar puncture is performed. The ensuing mononuclear (lymphocytic/monocytic) phase is characterized by a marked reduction of both the cell count and the granulocyte fraction. In this reactive phase, beginning 3–5 days after the initial polynuclear phase, lymphocytes and their activated forms become prominent, as an expression of an immune response, while monocytes and their activated forms play the role of phagocytes for the removal of cellular and tissue debris, and the pathogenic organisms themselves (cf.
