Naegleria fowleri wet mount CSF

Examine a drop of fresh, *warmed* CSF under a cover slip for motile trophozoites—they may move fast or VERY slowly and may be confused with WBC. Take several minutes to review the slide. Gentle heating increases movement; a drop of distilled water also prompts flagellation & and increased motility.
