Abstract

FERRI-DE-BARROS, João Eliézer. Cerebrovascular disease or brainvascular disease?: Reviewing the designation and respecting the anatomy. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1994, vol.52, n.2, pp. 277-278. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1994000200024.

Since the vascular disease that attempts the central nervous system localized intracranially may involve supra or/and infira tentorial structures, it is proposed the change of "Cerebrovascular disease" by "Brainvascular disease".

Keywords : cerebrovascular disease; brainvascular disease; cerebrum; brain; anatomical designation.
