To study varied clinical factors which are affected by tuberculous DNA in cerebrospinal fluid that can be detected with PCR on TCSM. Methods: The relations between the positive rate that were detected with PCR and some factors including the thpe,stage and time of therapy when detected were analysed. Results: That time of treatment was short or not was main factor to affect the positive rate. The untreated positive ratewas 88. 9 %,that treated within 1 month, more than 1 month,more than 2 months and more than 3months were 79. 3 %, 66. 7 %, 44. 4 % and 27. 8%. The type and stage of TCSM had no obviously affected.Conclusion: The main factor inclinic to affected the positive rate was the time of treatment that lasted. the rate could be decreased with treatment time prolonged.
