18 Possible Causes for Cerebral Vasculitis or Vasculopathy, Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) does not necessarily help in establishing the diagnosis as there are no pathognomonic features.[pmj.bmj.com] We identified 5 meningitis cases with delayed vasculopathy in the literature, but these patients did not exactly resemble the clinical course of our patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Zoster

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    The terms cerebritis and vasculitis are well embedded in the literature and will be used in this article, keeping in mind the evolving understanding of the underlying processes[emedicine.medscape.com] fluid (CSF), protein may be elevated and there may be an increase in the number of mononuclear cells.[epilepsy.com] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) evaluation revealed elevated proteins (84 mg/dL) with increased globulins, lymphocytic pleocytosis (total cells: 135/µL, White blood cells: 60 cells[ijpmonline.org]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In individuals with meningitis, CSF often shows low sugar along with an increased protein and increased white blood cell count CSF culture and Gram stain: The cerebrospinal[dovemed.com] […] number of monocytes in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) compared with seronegative cases.(40) Glucose and protein concentrations and the total white blood cell counts were similar[hivinsite.ucsf.edu]

  • Varicella-Zoster Virus Encephalitis

    HZV vasculopathy may involve large vessels in immunocompetent patients, ranging from necrotizing granulomatous arteritis to chronic vasculitis and thrombosis of cerebral vessels[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] […] vessels, suggestive of vasculitis [ 5 ].[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Cerebral angiography in a patient of HZV encephalitis reported by Jain et al . revealed multiple short segments of narrowing and beading involving the small- and medium-sized[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

  • AIDS-associated Meningoencephalitis

    Cerebral vasculitis, particularly that due to VZV or syphilitic arteritis, as well as vasculopathies due to chronic meningitis, or amphetamine or cocaine use, may cause thrombotic[hivinsite.ucsf.edu] Based on a case control study, this incidence is less than that among age-matched young adults with other terminal illnesses.(102) Among patients with advanced HIV disease, cerebral[hivinsite.ucsf.edu]

  • Other Specified Degenerative Diseases of the Nervous System

    Primary small vessel cerebral vasculitis usually shows chronic or sub-acute asymmetrical neurological progression (2).[path.upmc.edu] Laboratory examina-tions reveal in most cases liver dysfunction and increased cerebrospinal fluid protein. There are no findings suggestive of a mitochondrial disorder.[webview.isho.jp] Cerebrospinal fluid contained an increased amount of protein.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Susac Syndrome

    Cerebral angiography suggested vasculitis in the younger patient.[n.neurology.org] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis showed only mild pleocytosis and protein increase, fundus oculi examination a retinal vascular occlusion in the superior temporal regions[aidsrestherapy.biomedcentral.com] In approximately 45% of Susac syndrome cases, cerebrospinal fluid shows mild pleocytosis [16] ; unspecific increased protein level as we found in this case, which was also[medwave.cl]
