Abstract

The association of relapsing polychondritis with CSF pleocytosis is reported for the first time. Three cases are described in which infectious etiologies of the pleocytosis were excluded by appropriate cultures and serologic studies. We suggest that the finding of CSF pleocytosis in relapsing polychondritis does not merit empiric antimicrobial therapy in the absence of demonstrated infection.
