: The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 33 patients with a nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage was analyzed to determine whether hypoglycorrhachia occurred frequently after a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Twenty-three patients (70%) developed an abnormally low CSF glucose concentration or a lowered CSF-blood glucose ratio after their hemorrhage. Thus, hypoglycorrhachia seems to be a common spinal fluid finding after subarachnoid hemorrhage. (Neurosurgery 8:7-9, 1981)
