swelling, begins two or three days after a cerebral insult. Only in the area that has been injured, however, as localized swelling can greatly increase pressure throughout the whole cranium, the functioning of the entire brain may be affected. Edema of the brain should begin to decrease by the beginning of the first week post-injury. As intracranial pressure returns to normal levels, any behavioral changes that were caused by the swelling rather than by the brain injury will disappear.

The accumulation of fluid in the body's tissues, which causes swelling, often of the hands and feet. Common during pregnancy due to extra blood production and pressure on the vena cava from the growing uterus, which slows circulation.
Swelling secondary to the accumulation of excessive fluids in the tissues; most commonly seen in the lower extremities; may leave a depression in the skin when pressed with the patient's or physician's thumb ("pitting"). Often seen as an early manifestation of too much salt in the circulation or with congestive heart failure (CHF).
An edema (or dropsy) is an excessive accumulation of fluid in the body tissues. The resultant swelling may be local, associated with an injury or inflammation, or general, as occurs in heart or kidney failure.
Swelling of a tissue due to excessive accumulation of fluid. Skin edema is common. Edema in the lung is called pulmonary edema and may interfere with lung function. Edema is treated with diuretics and restriction of the amounts of fluids administered.
retaining excess fluid in the tissues. Patients with morbid obesity often have edema of the legs, which they experience as leg swelling. This is usually caused by abdominal pressure that impairs blood flow out of the legs, though in advanced (severe) cases the swelling might also be caused by heart failure.
