A highly nonspecific term which is strictly defined as inflammation of the brain.
It has been variously used as a synonym for:
• Brain abscess
• Fungal inflammation of the brain
• Systemic lupus erythematosus of the brain
This term got 282 hits on 25.05.2015, mostly in older primary literature. Given that each of the above definitions has a better understood name, the term cerebritis may warrant retirement.
