The objective of this study is to explore the human brain after heat stroke by MRI technology. Study group consisted of 6 patients after heat stroke, with a score of 3 to 9 in Glasgow Coma Scale. The MRI studies including susceptibility weighted imaging were performed with a 1.5 T scanner.Some patients were followed up by the same MRI studies 2-3 times. Abnormal signals were detected at brain stem, cerebellar dentate nucleus, cerebellar peduncles, cerebellum, hippocampus, corona radiate, centrum ovale, et al. The lesions including micro hemorrhage, cytotoxic edema, vasogenic edema, hemorrhagic infarction, encephalitis. Heat stroke may cause multiple brain lesions such as ischemia, hemorrhage, infarction, inflammation and can produce remarkable symmetric lesions in the cerebellum.
