Cortical pseudolaminar necrosis, also known as cortical laminar necrosis and simply laminar necrosis, is the (uncontrolled) death of cells in the (cerebral) cortex of the brain in a band-like pattern,[1] with a relative preservation of cells immediately adjacent to the meninges.

It is seen in the context of cerebral hypoxic-ischemic insults, i.e. strokes.
