Defining cerebrospinal fluid profiles following epileptic seizures

Takeaway

  • The type of epileptic seizure potentially affects cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) profiles, with elevated lactate concentrations associated with motor-onset seizures.

Why this matters

  • Clinicians currently analyze CSF as part of the diagnostic tests to determine possible immune system involvement, these results may assist them in avoiding over-interpretation of minor changes occurring regardless of inflammation.
