Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF)

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a colourless, transparent liquid found in the brain and spinal cord. Your CNS is made up of your brain and spinal cord. This includes muscle movement, organ function, and even complicated thinking and planning. CSF protects the brain and spinal cord by cushioning unexpected impacts. CSF also aids in the correct functioning of the CNS.

CSF analysis is a series of tests that look at your cerebrospinal fluid to diagnose brain and spinal cord illnesses such as:

  • Brain and spinal cord infections
  • Diseases caused by the immune system
  • Bleeding in the brain.
  • Tumours of the brain

Why done? 

CSF testing is required for brain or spinal cord infection symptoms or an autoimmune condition like multiple sclerosis (MS).

Infections of the brain or spinal cord cause:

• Headache
• Seizures
• Vomit and nausea
• Light sensitivity

MS symptoms include:

• Doubly-visioned

• Arms, legs, or face tingling

• Spasms

• Illnesses

• Dizziness

• Bladder issues

• Leg, arm, and upper body weakness and tingling are Guillain-Barré symptoms.

Injuries to the brain or spinal cord may require CSF examination, as well as cancers that have spread to the brain or spinal cord.


A spinal tap, also known as a lumbar puncture, collects your cerebrospinal fluid. It's done in a hospital.
