Figure 3. Cranial computed tomography findings on hospital days 3 and 5. (A, B) on hospital day 3, (C, D) on hospital day 5. Cranial computed tomography on hospital day 3 shows whole-brain edema with an indistinct cortico-medullary junction at the base of the brain. There is narrowing of the Sylvian fissure (A, arrows) and lateral ventricles (B, arrowheads) with no abnormal findings in the basal ganglia. Cranial computed tomography on hospital day 5 shows the marked improvements in whole-brain edema, the indistinctness of the cortico-medullary junction, and the narrowing of the Sylvian fissure (C, arrows). The narrowing of the lateral ventricles has persisted (D, arrowheads).
