Lumbar Puncture

A lumbar puncture is a procedure in which a needle is inserted into the lower spine to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. By looking at the patient’s white blood cell count, glucose levels, protein, and bacteria, this procedure can diagnose serious infections such as meningitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis, or cancers of the brain or spinal cord.
