CSF opening pressure: Reference interval and the effect of body mass index

Whiteley, William; Al-Shahi, MA; Warlow, C P; Zeidler, M; Lueck, Christian


We prospectively recorded CSF opening pressure in 242 adults who had a lumbar puncture with concomitant measurement of weight and height. The 95% reference interval for lumbar CSF opening pressure was 10 to 25 cm CSF. Body mass index had a small but clinically insignificant influence on CSF opening pressure.
