encephalomalacic

Hi I am 24 years old, recently i underwent a MRI scan of the brain. It showed i had encephalomalacic areas in right caudate and internal capsule. Is this critical and what is the treatment available for this.

That means softening of the brain.
I think it would depend on the cause and the severity that would determine both if it was critical and the treatments.

Hi Rumpled thanks for the reply....when i was 16 i was suffering from high fever for continous 6 months. The doctor said its because of that and also he said as i have started working in a company from last 6 months, i have been under some stress and thus i have started to feel symptoms of encephalomalacic.

I hope you are able to continue working. Stress is sometimes an awful thing when you are starting out (and later, too).

That is for your doctor to say! Diagnosing over the internet with minimal info is not a good idea - especially since we are not doctors... but I hope you do get better.

Stress can cause an inflammatory response on our body and our immune system.  When encephalomalacic areas are found in an MRI the main concern is encephalitis and brain hemmohrage.  You should be fine give your body time to adjust as this is a new stressor on you and with time the inflammation should go down and you should be just fine.  If the doctor is not concerned about the 2 items I mentioned being the cause of the encephalomalacic then there is no cause for alarm.
