Cortical Laminar Necrosis

Cortical laminar necrosis is the death of cells in the cortex of the brain in a band-like pattern, with a relative preservation of cells immediately adjacent to the meninges.

The difference can be seen as a consequence of the neurons within the cortex being far more metabolically active than glial cells or adjacent white matter.

It is a finding that can be seen in late subacute to chronic stroke.
