The consequences of cerebral herniation are compression of the brain, cranial nerves, and blood vessels that may result in serious neurologic morbidity, coma, and even death. A thorough understanding of the various patterns of cerebral herniation is essential, and it is important to remember that many of these patterns of herniation overlap. CT and MR imaging are effective at establishing the diagnosis of cerebral herniation, which will guide important decisions regarding therapeutic options and prognosis.
