Abstract

It is still controversial whether edema fluid around a malignant brain tumor is derived only from capillaries within the tumor or is also produced outside the tumor. The purpose of this study is to clarify the region of increased capillary permeability, and the spreading of serum proteins and edematous fluid from capillaries, using a double autoradiographic method. The effect of steroids on peritumoral edema was also examined.
