Brain Pathology Review
Endotracheal tube in oral cavity. Nasogastric tube through left nostril, appears folded in oropharynx.
Homogeneously low density of entire brain, both supra- and infratentorial, with effacement of sulci, basal cisterns, and ventricles (only thin atria of lateral ventricles visible). Consistent with diffuse, widespread brain oedema due to anoxia.
