Abstract

Drowning is associated with the arrest of alveolar oxygen exchange and the development of cerebral hypoxia. Cerebral hypoxia, in turn, leads to circulatory arrest and decreased cerebral blood flow. The resultant neuropathologic changes reflect the effects of both hypoxia and ischemia. We had the opportunity to observe the computed tomographic (CT) abnormalities caused by drowning in two patients. In both, basal ganglia hypodensities were the predominant CT features.
