Why is csf protein in newborn is high normally?
Since blood-csf barrier is not well developed in neonates protein leak from blood to csf occurs...so csf protein is high in neonates and infants...for similar reason csf protein is elevated in all meningitis due to vascular permeability... ...

What damage is caused by swelling of the meninges which interferes with the normal absorption of CSF by blood vessels?
Swelling of the meninges may interfere with the normal absorption of CSF by blood vessels, causing accumulation of CSF and damage from the resulting pressure on the brain. ...

What causes hydrocephalus?
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is excessive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. There are two types obstructive and communicating. Any tumor can cause this problem.

Asked in Human Anatomy and Physiology
Where does the csf drain from subarachnoid space?
In the brain we have small protrusions of the arachnoid and subarachnoid space into the venous system. These protrusions are called arachnoid villi or arachnoid granulations and they allow for drainage of CSF into the venous system. Another source of CSF drainage is the lymphatic system. ...
