Abstract

The acute brain edema which follows a cortical cold lesion is characterized by the appearance of fibril-filled astrocytes within hours of lesion production. This gliosis is steadily progressive for many months after injury. Prompt alleviation of the edema with glucosteroids greatly reduces the severity of the process.
