  • This might be a long shot, but patients with multiple sclerosis can have proteins in the CSF (specifically myelin, so knowing what kind of protein it is exactly would be helpful). It would also help to know what kind of lymphocytes, because B-cells target myelin proteins and would be present along with the proteins. There are so many things that could cause these results in a CSF culture, can you tell us anything else? Have you been exposed to anything, had a viral illness recently, any other symptoms? What other testing have you had and what were the results?
