Oedema in the distribution of the right middle cerebral artery. This seems more a vasogenic pattern rather than the typical cytotoxic oedema involving both grey and white matter as usually seen in cerebral infarction. This is in part explained by early cortical laminar necrosis (cortical ribbon hyperdensity due to proteinaceous material) as well as probable early petechial haemorrhage.
