Neuro_CT_Head: 46 F with SLE, found unresponsive.

Extensive bilateral cerebellar edema with resultant hydrocephalus and downward tonsillar herniation

Symmetric basal ganglia infarction that is most consistent with anoxic brain injury.

Diagnostic considerations for these findings include extensive brainstem infarct with resultant hypoxic/ischemic injury to the bilateral basal ganglia, or global hypoxic ischemic with early cerebral edema and resulting in herniation and bilateral PICA occlusion. Recommend MRI evaluation with MRA.
