Keywords: cerebrospinal fluid, diagnostics, cytological examination


Characteristic features of neoplastic cells occurring in the cerebrospinal fluid are described. The reasons for a much higher efficacy of the cerebrospinal fluid cytological examination in cases of metastatic tumors than in primary tumors of the CNS are discussed. Principles of neoplastic cells identification by means of monoclonal antibodies are outlined. (ed.)
