CONTEXT Because of its onset in generally remote environments, high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) has received little scientific attention. Understanding the pathophysiology might have implications for prevention and treatment of both this disorder and the much more common acute mountain sickness. OBJECTIVES To identify a clinical imaging correlate for HACE and determine whether the edema is primarily vasogenic or cytotoxic. DESIGN Case-comparison study.
