651 Possible Causes for Cerebral Edema, Hemiparesis, Poor Outcome

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[] poor outcome of patient with aSAH.[] The levels of IL-1β, IL-18 and TNF-α in the CSF were especially higher in the group of aSAH patients with cerebral edema, cerebral vasospasm, and a high grade on Hunt-Hess[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    During the course of illness, the patient had an acute cerebral hemorrhage, which manifested with hemiparesis, dysarthria, and pathologic crying.[] We used multiple logistic regression analysis to show that lower serum uric acid levels independently predicted poor functional outcomes (mRS 2) at 1 year after ischemic stroke[] The neurologic morbidities, including seizure activity, motor/sensory deficit, and coma, can be seen secondary to cerebral edema, hemorrhage, or ischemia.[]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[] Our case had a poor outcome, unlike the majority of previously reported cases. Copyright 2018 National Stroke Association. Published by Elsevier Inc.[] These patients are at high risk for progressive neurologic deterioration and death due to malignant cerebral edema, and they are best cared for in the intensive care unit[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    She was treated with anticoagulation therapy and her hemiparesis improved within 3 days.[] Study population: Patients are eligible if they have a radiologically proven CVT, a high probability of poor outcome (defined by presence of one or more of the following risk[] cerebral edema, played a major role in the development of cerebral thrombosis.[]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

    She recovered and could speak short sentences, but dysphasia and right hemiparesis remained.[] For the analysis of prognostic factors, outcome at 6 months was the main end point and was considered to be binary (favorable outcome vs. poor outcome).[] This viral encephalitis is well known to cause severe cerebral edema and hemorrhagic necrosis with resultant increases in intracranial pressure (ICP).[]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    She had right sided hemiparesis, signs of meningeal irritation with normal fundus examination. Her breasts were soft.[] outcome.[] […] of venous obstruction leading to a cyclical cascade of edema and further cerebral venous obstruction.[]

  • Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome

    A 42-year-old woman, a diagnosed case of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), developed severe headache followed by left hemiparesis and cortical blindness.[] Infarction on baseline imaging predicted poor outcome. Prior serotonergic antidepressant use predicted clinical and angiographic worsening but not poor outcome.[] Initial cranial CT scan showed an acute small subdural hematoma (17 mm length 6 mm width 30 mm height), cerebral edema with slit ventricles, and slight cerebellar tonsillar[]

  • Basilar Artery Occlusion

    Abstract A transient hemiparesis may be ocassionally present at an early stage of the thrombosis of the basilar artery (herald hemiparesis).[] Uni- and multivariable modeling were performed to identify independent predictors of poor outcome.[] Additionally, the presence of large hemispheric cerebellar infarctions may cause cerebral edema and compression of the fourth ventricle.[]

  • Cerebral Angiitis

    Four patients with herpes zoster ophthalmicus and delayed contralateral hemiparesis are described, and their findings are compared with those in patients previously reported[] Intravascular beta-amyloid deposits are prevalent and associated with poor outcomes (mortality in 38 %). 24 Tumour-like lesions without amyloid deposits respond well to immunosuppressive[] The necrotizing vasculitis primarily affects the small intracranial arteries and veins and alters vascular permeability, ind,cing cerebral edema.[]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    An 81-year-old man, presenting with left hemiparesis, underwent craniotomy for right organized CSH after 2 burr-hole surgeries.[] Recurrent cases presented a poor outcome (P 0.05).[] edema.[]
