    Hi dawn1004,

    Welcome to BrainTalk!

    Encephalomalacia means that you have a softening or loss of tissue in the brain, often due to trauma. The report notes "prior trauma" as a cause of encephalomalacia in the right temporal lobe. Beyond that I can't be of much help, and I don't find any discussion of this condition recently on the BrainTalk forums.

    It is a complex and serious condition, and I have a feeling that any Internet searching might be misleading. I hope you have a competent doctor who can answer your questions. You can find a list of symptoms of encephalomalacia but your particular case may be different from the typical case.
