#medmystery this type of brain injury is more common in cities than in rural area. any guesses?
Realtime comments disabled
Its a lesion with old blood because it's not solid white. I guess stroke because its demarcated
I am not a doctor. My guess intracerebral bleed with edema. I wonder. Does this can also happen to MS patients?
Intracerebral bleed with edema, skull looks intact-so i vote for blunt trauma not penetrating.
police car noise irritation of the brain :)
Left parietal cerebral contusion,probably from blunt trauma such as assault with a baseball bat
Doesn't seem like physical trauma, more pathological, but cant figure out what, must be a disease
Subdural hematoma from intra-aural insertion of peanut M&M's, definitely.
Blunt trauma from fall on pavement ie street/sidewalk found more in cities than in rural areas.
Blunt force trauma--> I'm going to go with either an assault (w/ a baseball bat) or a car accident (victim hit his head on side-panel of car or a window)
Is it stress
Blunt trauma from a bus mirror.
My guess was whiplash - from congestion of traffic and rear end collisions from people following too closely.
umm Bike courier first guesses a single impact even with a helmet. opps
mmm looks really nasty but i think it looks look blunt force trauma, reason being the brain looks swollen on the left or the brain, (i know on the pic it is on the right but this is actually the left of the brain.) and there is no sign of a skull fracture
blunt force trauma/slip on steps/on ice? Fall while intoxicated? (in rural wdB hit by rolling pin.
it's looks like some type of blunt force trauma....look at the swelling on the right side of the pic
gunshot wound? In the country, people who are shot get that way as a last resort. In the city, shooting someone seems to be the first thought.
My original thought was brain swelling from a bullet wound, could be blunt trauma from cars too.
