The correlation of the cerebrospinal fluid neutrophil count with the peripheral and intrathecal inflammatory parameters. The laboratory parameters on admission to hospital in a group of 240 patients with TBE. The neutrophil count expressed in cells/μl is presented on the vertical axis in all the panels plotted against other parameters presented on horizontal axes. a Peripheral blood neutrophilia (in cells/μl). b Serum concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP, expressed in mg/l). ce Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inflammatory parameters: c lymphocyte count (cells/μl), d total protein concentration (mg/dl), and e albumin concentration (mg/dl). f The CSF/serum albumin quotient (Qalb) calculated as described in the “Methods” section in a subgroup of 36 patients. The data from individual patients are shown with points, the linear fit with a continuous line and the 95% confidence interval with dashed lines. For significant correlations, the strength R and significance p are presented in the upper right corner of a panel. NS non-significant. In a, 5 extreme cases with a very high CSF neutrophil counts exceeding 200/μl, exclusion of which revealed a significant correlation, are highlighted with red
