Viral Meningitis and WBC levels - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : hello
User : Hi..I would like to ask about viral meningitis..I had it a month ago and my lumbar showed 4.40 white cells at first then it dropped to 1.78 3 weeks ago after taking antibiotics for 10 days and I was discharged from hospital..today, my lumbar showed 0.70 white cells. My question is is it normal to still have this level of white cells after this time or should they all be gone by now?
