The analysis results of cerebrospinal fluid demonstrated that the concentration of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the cerebrospinal fluid of the patients with tubercular meningitis was the highest, the concentration of creatine kinase (CK) in the cerebrospinal fluid of the patients with purulent meningitis was the highest, and the concentration of lactic acid (LA) in the cerebrospinal fluid of the patients with tubercular meningitis and purulent meningitis was higher than that of the other patients; the differences were statistically significant (P0.05); therefore, the results of the two groups were comparable.
