Metastatic brain tumors are almost always associated with vasogenic brain edema, which in turn plays a pivotal role in the evolution of neurological morbidity associated with these lesions. Attention has recently focused on a group of proteinaceous vascular permeability factors (VPF's) that are capable of inducing angiogenesis and promoting increased(More)
Peritumoral vasogenic brain edema (PVBE) is a common accompaniment of malignant gliomas. It results from microvascular extravasation of plasma fluid and proteins through the interendothelial spaces. Tumor-associated cysts (TACs) are observed more commonly with benign gliomas that are not associated with PVBE. This study investigates the hypothesis that(More)
