    The correlation between age and CSF protein in 38 patients with pathologically proven motor neurone disease was the reverse of that described for normal subjects by Tibbling et al in 1977. Eight had CSF protein ranging from 0.75 g/1 to 1.52 g/L. These patients were younger, but other clinical and gross and light microscopy pathological features were not significantly different from those with lower CSF protein. Transudation from serum may be only one of the mechanisms underlying this elevation in CSF protein.
