Figure 20 (A-E): Cytotoxic/vasogenic edema. (A, B) GRE images. (C, D) Diffusion-weighted images. (E) Time-of-fl ight venography: A 28-year-old postpartum female presented with headache, giddiness, and ataxia. On MRI, thrombosis of the straight sinus (arrows in A, E) and internal cerebral veins (double arrows in A) is seen causing cytotoxic edema in bilateral basal ganglia (arrows in D) and body of corpus callosum (arrow in C). A hemorrhagic focus is also seen in the genu of corpus callosum (arrow in B)
