Similar mechanisms also cause cytotoxic edema in the astrocyte with cytotoxic edema of various diseases, including infarction, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, status epilepticus, and traumatic brain injury, such as diffuse axonal injury, contusion and shaken baby syndrome [6, 7]. Increased extracellular glutamate is a direct cause of excitotoxic brain injury. In acute excitotoxic injury, increased extracellular glutamate results from an increased release/ leakage of glutamate or a decreased re-uptake (Fig.

B Gadolinium T1-weighted image with magnetization transfer contrast shows gyral enhancement in the cortical lesions, representing subacute infarcts. c DW image also shows hyperintense lesions in the right deep white matter (arrows), and gray matter of both frontal and right parieto-occipital regions (arrowheads). d The ADC map shows decreased ADC in the right deep white matter lesion (arrows), and normal or slightly increased ADC in the gray matter lesions (arrowheads). The prolonged decreased ADC in the white matter may reflect edema of myelin sheaths or axons Chapter 5 disruption, which results in increased amounts of extracellular water.
