Abstract

The detection of beta trace-protein with the help of an easy-to-perform Ouchterlony test is strongly indicative of liquorrhea. The protein has been purified from pooled cerebrospinal fluid and an antiserum has been produced in rabbits. An open CSF fistula was diagnosed in 24 cases and there was no false positive result.
