Among the 104 studied patients, 62 had convexital leptomeningitis, 7--basal, 3--of the posterior cavity and 28 diffuse forms. In patients with leptomeningitis of the posterior cavity in the absence of an engorged papilla of the eyeground, ozone was introduced by occipital punctures, in convexital and basal leptomeningitis--by lumbar puncture. An introduction of ozone into the subarachnoid space was conducted in combination with resorptive and general therapy.
