CSF opening pressure: reference interval and the effect of body mass index.

Author information

Division of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Edinburgh, UK.


We prospectively recorded CSF opening pressure in 242 adults who had a lumbar puncture with concomitant measurement of weight and height. The 95% reference interval for lumbar CSF opening pressure was 10 to 25 cm CSF. Body mass index had a small but clinically insignificant influence on CSF opening pressure.
