What is cerebral infarction?

Cerebral infarction refers to damage to brain tissue resulting from a stroke. It occurs due to decreased blood supply and oxygen delivery to the brain, causing brain cell death and brain damage. It is typically caused by a blood clot or fatty/cholesterol plaques blocking a blood vessel to the brain, but can also occur if a blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the brain.

Symptoms of cerebral infarction

  • Numbness or abnormal sensation over my face

  • Weakness on one side of the body

  • Difficulty seeing on one side

  • Smile is not symmetrical

  • Speech that does not make sense, or behavior that is strange

  • Having difficulty writing out words

  • Pain over the back of my head

  • Unable to speak, although I understand what people are saying

Questions your doctor may ask to check for cerebral infarction

  • Do you feel anything unusual on your face?

  • Are you experiencing an inability to move one side of your body?

  • Are you currently experiencing vision loss in one eye?

  • Is it hard to raise one corner of your mouth when you smile?

  • Do others think you speak incoherently or act irrationally?

Treatment for cerebral infarction

Cerebral infarction is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment in the hospital. Medications or surgery may be performed to treat this condition.
