Özet

An objective method to evaluate the erythrocytes in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in traumatic tap is described. In newborn infants with intracranial bleeding the CSF mean corpuscular volume (MCV) values are lower than the peripheral blood MCV, but in patients with traumatic tap, the CSF and blood MCV values are similar.
