refering back to Unexplained Seizures

the doctors found an minor ear infection in both ears (AUGMENTEN for that).. Also the neurologist did a shunt tap and commented that the pressure was a little low....when the results came back the report said that her protein level was a little elevated...is that cause for alarm?????? Are they missing minor infections that they just don't want to  look for????

Hello Dear,

Total protein levels in CSF are normally very low, and albumin makes up approximately twothirds of the total. High levels are seen in many conditions including bacterial and fungal meningitis, multiple sclerosis, tumors, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and traumatic tap. The high protein levels are also seen in  in demyelinating polyneuropathies, or postinfectious states.
