8D60.0/G93.2 Brain herniation syndromes



Brain herniation syndromes are caused by a pressure buildup inside the skull due to a variety of causes, such as intracranial bleeding, brain swelling, or tumors.


Brain herniation syndromes are diagnosed based on a physical examination and a CT or MRI scan of the brain.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that cause similar symptoms include hydrocephalus, meningitis, and subarachnoid hemorrhage.


Treatment for brain herniation syndromes usually involves reducing the pressure inside the skull. This can be done through medications, surgery, or other treatments. The goal is to reduce the pressure while maintaining adequate cerebral perfusion.


The prognosis for patients with brain herniation syndromes is generally good, although it depends on the cause of the condition, the severity of the symptoms, and the response to treatment.
