Abstract: We reported five cases of lateral ventricle tumors all of which developed severe brain edema between nine days and eight years after surgry. Follow-up study with serial computed tomography before and after surgery were presented. Based on a review of the literature, a possible causal mechanism is suggested : 1) The cerebrospinal fluid diffuses into the white matter through the surgically damged ependyma and causes severe postoperative edema ; and 2) surgical blockade of the flow of cerebral interstitial fluid to drain into the fenestrated vessels of the choroid plexux and other periventricular areas causes severe postoperative edema.
