FOCAL ENCEPHALOMALACIA & GLIOSIS
My 26 yr. old brother had brain surgery due to cerebral hemorrhage 10 years ago, he just had an MRI that states he has focal encephalomalacia and gliosis.  His doctor is referring him to a neurologist but I want to know more about this so that I can be of some help to him.

Hi,

Encephalomalacia and gliosis refer to brain damage or loss of brain cells. This condition can occur as a result of trauma, hemorrhage or infections in the brain.
In your brother’s case hemorrhage is the most likely cause.

Unfortunately there is no treatment currently available to reverse brain damage. Treatment is mainly focused around management of symptoms. Emotional support in management of neurological symptoms will help him cope with them in a better way.

Hope this helps!
