The treatment of first choice for patients developing vasogenic edema includes the reduction of blood pressure and supportive measures, whereas the treatment of patients suffering from acute stroke who developed cytotoxic edema and infarction requires a more aggressive therapy, applying the treatment protocols for other etiologies, for instance, subarachnoid hemorrhage with vasospasm [14].
