    Hi,
    I'm doing my internship in Neurology right now and would like to know, which diseases could be transmitted to me, if I got a drop of fluid on my hands. I haven't found anything on the Internet so far. :/

    No diseases that aren't present in that drop of CSF to begin with

    What does your occupational health department think about this exposure? They are the ones to ask, not the internet.
