Answer

Laboratory findings from examination of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) often are normal. Even when CSF results are abnormal, no consistent patterns emerge. Abnormal findings from EEG, when observed, are nonspecific and transient. CT or MRI study findings of the brain are usually normal or reveal transient abnormalities.
