LP should then be deferred and a CT done. Likewise, an impaired coagulation (especially platelet count <40–50 × 109/L) could be a contraindication to LP. If the suspicion of a CNS infection is high, start antibiotics and antivirals (aciclovir) without delay. If the CT does not show a focal mass lesion or impending herniation and if the suspicion of infection/inflammation remains, LP can usually be done safely after stabilizing and observing the patient for a couple of hours. Note that a normal CT does not exclude increased ICP and risk of herniation.
