Spinal tap results

Protein csf 53h, rbc 23h and the o bands sayd,,,,, oligoclonal bands noted: 3 identical gamma restriction bands are observed in csf and serum. This is indicative of systemic rather than intra-cerebral symthesis of gammaglobulins. Anyone know what any of this means??

Hi there, i'm not confident with these types of tests so for what its worth, from my understanding lab ranges vary greatly so your LP results fall with in the normal ranges so what ever caused you to need an LP, is unlikely to be diagnosed from these types of results but keep in mind that normal is of its self usually informative in the rule in and out faze of the diagnostic process.

Hope that helps a little...........JJ
