cerebritis

MEDSPEAK

A highly nonspecific term which is strictly defined as inflammation of the brain.

It has been variously used as a synonym for:

• Brain abscess

• Encephalitis

• 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.
