    Increase in CSF protein in association with ECT


    In this case report we describe a 44 year old man who developed a transient increase of CSF protein in association with a course of electroconvulsive therapy for depression. Neurological evaluation failed to show any other abnormalities. The finding seems to reflect a transient dysfunction of the blood-brain barrier.
