Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the intrathecal production of TNF-α in 48 patients with nervous system infections and 14 subjects without neurological disorders. Elevated CSF levels of TNF-α were found in patients with cryptococcal meningitis (88%), bacterial meningitis (68%) and with AIDS dementia complex (66%). Our results indicate the TNF-α involvement in various infectious conditions of the nervous systems.
