Determination of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) glucose helps distinguish bacterial from viral meningitis; the glucose value is often low (less than 40% to 45% of simultaneously analyzed, equilibrated serum glucose) in bacterial meningitis and tuberculous meningitis and is generally normal in viral disease. Carcinomatous meningitis (widespread infiltration of the meninges by tumor cells) also drives CSF glucose values below the normal range.
