T h e viruses could also be detected in the CSF. Fridman and a number of coworkers studied the CSF changes in horses affected with Russian equine encephalomyelitis. They found abnormal amounts of albumin and globulin, an increase in sugar, and a decrease in the alkali reserve. T h e p H figure and the calcium content were high. Rehm believed he found rickettsia in the CSF of a horse and a mule. T h e horse showed a slightly increased cell count, and both animals had an augmented protein level. An increase of protein, but not of the cell count, has been observed in FroehnerDobberstein's encephalitis.
Fedotov, who also champions suboccipital III. THE CEREBROSPINAL (and in addition the cervical) technique, believes that lumbar puncture can never be of much use in the horse (Fig. 2). Cisternal puncture, on the other hand, can be performed without particular difficulty; the only disadvantage is the necessity of general anesthesia. The anesthetized animal is placed in lateral recumbency, with the head well fixed in ventral flexion so that the tangents of head and neck form an angle of 90°. The field of operation is shaved and carefully disinfected.
We add only the findings of Josland, Fedotov (1937, 1947), and Nawratzki (cited by Rehm). Normal CSF in cattle is waterlike and colorless. In the lumbar fluid there are often some small whitish flakes, which, under the microscope, are acidophilic amorphous masses, probably debris from degenerated cells that accumulate at the end of the dural recess. As a rule, the CSF does not flow out spontaneously; it may do this if the animal breathes II COMPOSITION OF NORMAL C S F IN CATTLE COMPARED WITH THAT OF M A N Aspect Total amount (estimated) (ml) Pressure (mm H O) a Surface tension Freezing point depression Specific gravity Viscosity pH Cells (per cubic millimeter) Phosphorus (inorganic) (mg %) Calcium (mg %) Magnesium (mg %) Potassium (mg %) Alkali reserve (vol.
