This book contains the papers delivered at the Symposium on "Medical Treatment of Brain Ede ma" at the Seventh International Congress ofNeu rological Surgery, held in Munich in 1981. The aim of each speaker was to give a short review of current knowledge in his or her field. In addition, most of the authors presented their own data. The symposium . was divided into two parts. The experimental part focused on pathophysiological and biochemical findings, while the clinical part dealt with therapy for brain edema, with particular emphasis on steroids.
