Cerebritis is the inflammation of the cerebrum which performs a number of important functions, such as memory and speech. It is also defined as a purulent nonencapsulated parenchymal infection of brain which is characterized by nonspecific features on CT (ill-defined low density area with peripheral enhancement) and cannot reliably be distinguished from neoplasms.Cerebritis usually occurs as a result of an underlying condition, which causes the inflammation of the brain tissue.
