Hi all,
after many blood tests wich still are not back yet, I recieved a letter from my Neuro yesterday. I cannot make out what he is saying or trying to say. It reads as follows:
This lady has recently undergone a lumbar puncture, wich has revealed normal CSF constituents including protein, glucose and cell count, BUT positive oligoclonal bands, which are also present in the serum, suggesting systemic inflammation as well as intrathecal synthesis.
This is not diagnostic of Multiple Sclerosis in isolation. HOWEVER, the vasculitis screen that was requested is clearly indicated.....................

I have had various bloods taken for Lupus, Rheumatiod Arthritis etc etc, and awaiting the results, however does anyone have any idea what the neuro is thinking or saying here.
thanks ...
