  Central nervous system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The CNS is contained within the dorsal cavity, with the brain within the cranial subcavity, and the spinal cord in the spinal cavity.
The CNS is covered by the meninges, the brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord by the vertebrae.
The basic pattern of the CNS is highly conserved throughout the different species of vertebrates and during evolution.

 CNS lymphoma : Cancerbackup
CNS is an abbreviation for the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and a network of nerves throughout the body.
The treatment for a CNS lymphoma depends on a number of things including your general health, the size and position of the tumour, and whether or not it has spread.
It may be given into a vein (intravenously), but is usually given into the fluid surrounding the brain by a lumbar puncture, or through a special flat plastic bubble (ommaya reservoir) which is inserted under the scalp during an operation.

 A pre-parser for formal metadata
cns reads the input file line-by-line and builds a parse tree using the same software that xtme and mp use to handle metadata internally.
The problem is that cns can misinterpret some errors and then mix things up a bit, so you always have to look carefully at the output file as well as the leftovers file.
So in general, cns should be used where you know the indentation is a mess or where the element names have been written without the underscores or where the section numbers precede the element names or, more commonly, where all of these conditions are likely.

 CNS Vasculitis
The signs and symptoms of CNS vasculitis are similar to those encountered in having a stroke because they result from a reduction or sudden stoppage of blood flow to the brain.
The symptoms of CNS vasculitis may be extremely difficult to separate from more common forms of neurologic disease such as multiple stokes from hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), emboli (dislodged blood clots that travel to the brain from the heart or large blood vessels in the neck), infections or even multiple sclerosis.
Once the diagnosis of CNS vasculitis is secured, to best determine appropriate treatment, the clinician must attempt to classify this disease into one of several subcategories.
