Also known as a Lumbar Puncture, a spinal tap is a procedure in which the “subarachnoid space” in the lumbar region (low back) of the spinal cord is punctured in order to withdraw cerebrospinal fluid or inject anesthetic drugs. The most common purpose for this procedure is to collect cerebral spinal fluid in a case of suspected spinal meningitis.
