Cerebral edema is excess accumulation of fluid (edema) in the intracellular or extracellular spaces of the brain. Contents. 1 Signs and symptoms; 2 Causes. El edema cerebral subyacente en esta patología puede ser de varios tipos: citotóxico, vasogénico, intersticial o hidrostático. El aumento de la presión. Aumento patológico de la cantidad de agua en el cerebro con incremento del volumen del parénquima cerebral. Vasogénico Citotóxico.

Cerebral edema – Wikipedia

This intracellular edema mainly affects grey matter but also involves the white matter as astrocytes are also involved. Altered metabolism may cause brain cutotoxico to retain waterand dilution of the blood plasma may cause excess water to move into brain cells. Fasogenico Course and Prognostic Signs”. Thrombus Thrombosis Renal vein thrombosis. Normally, the osmolality of cerebral-spinal fluid CSF and extracellular fluid ECF in the brain is slightly lower than that of plasma.

Journal of Clinical Investigation. Subtypes of vasogenic edema include:.

Interstitial cerebral edema differs from vasogenic edema as CSF contains almost no protein. Encephalitis Viral encephalitis Herpesviral encephalitis Limbic encephalitis Encephalitis lethargica Cavernous sinus thrombosis Brain abscess Amoebic. Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases. Vasogenic cerebral edema Vasogenic edema Vasogenic brain oedema Vasogenic brain edema. Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Clots Thrombus Thrombosis Renal vein thrombosis. Vasogenic edema occurs due to a breakdown of the tight endothelial junctions that make up the blood—brain barrier.

The one sequence which is able to identify cytotoxic edema, and was thus responsible for a revolution in the imaging of acute ischemic stroke, is diffusion weighted imaging DWI.


Cytotoxic edema is seen with various toxins, including dinitrophenoltriethyltin, hexachloropheneand isoniazid. Most changes in morphology are associated with cerebral edema: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. In most instances, cytotoxic and vasogenic edema occur together. Magnetic resonance imaging evidence of cytotoxic cerebral edema in acute mountain sickness.

Many studies of the mechanical properties of brain edema were conducted in the s, most of them based on finite element analysis FEAa widely used numerical method in solid mechanics. Thank you for updating your details.

Views Read Edit View history. During vasigenico ischemic strokea lack of oxygen and glucose leads to a breakdown of the sodium-calcium pumps on brain cell membranes, which in turn results in a massive buildup of sodium and calcium intracellularly.

D ICD – Once plasma constituents cross the barrier, citotlxico edema spreads; this may be quite rapid and extensive. Citotocico brain herniation occurs, respiratory symptoms or respiratory arrest can also occur due to compression of the respiratory centres in the pons and medulla oblongata.

This causes a rapid uptake of water and subsequent swelling of the cells. Case 1 – breast cancer metastases Case 1 – breast cancer metastases. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The blood—brain barrier BBB or the blood— cerebrospinal fluid CSF barrier may break down, allowing fluid to accumulate in the brain’s extracellular space.

One manifestation of this is P. Diffusion-weighted imaging shows cytotoxic and vasogenic edema in eclampsia. Poliomyelitis Demyelinating disease Transverse myelitis Tropical spastic paraparesis Epidural abscess.


This type vasobenico edema may result from trauma, tumors, focal inflammation, late stages of cerebral ischemia and hypertensive encephalopathy.

Brain herniation Reye’s Hepatic encephalopathy Toxic encephalopathy Hashimoto’s encephalopathy. As cytotoxic edema represents the redistribution of water from extracellular to intracellular compartments, without a change in local constituents it stands to reason that no T1 or T2 changes are evident.

About Blog Go ad-free. Articles Cases Courses Quiz. Symptoms include nauseavomitingblurred visionfaintnessand in severe cases, seizures and coma. This allows intravascular proteins and fluid to penetrate into the parenchymal extracellular space. Unable to process the form. Cytotoxic cerebral edema Cytotoxic brain oedema Cytotoxic brain edema. Interstitial edema occurs in obstructive hydrocephalus due to a rupture of the CSF—brain barrier. These changes persist into the subacute phase until about 2 weeks when the ADC signal begins to rise above the normal parenchyma and eventually becomes hyperintense.

Fast travel to high altitude without proper acclimatization can cause high-altitude cerebral edema HACE. Vasogenic edema caused by amyloid-modifying treatments, such as monoclonal antibodiesis known as ARIA-E amyloid-related imaging abnormalities edema.

Articles Cases Courses Quiz. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. As cells swell due to inward shift of water, the there is a commensurate decrease in diffusion, identified as high signal on DWI and low signal on ADC.
