what are the symptoms of gliosis?

Comments: Gliosis is NOT a disease or syndrome, it is a description of an area of scarring in the brain, perhaps secondary to prior trauma or disease. In many cases, the original issue is quiescent, and not symptoms are present. If you or someone else carries this label, you might explore further the significance with our Concierge docs.
