11 Possible Causes for Cerebral Vasculitis or Vasculopathy, Fluctuating Level of Consciousness

  • Stroke

    ), noninflammatory vasculopathy, Moyamoya disease and fibromuscular dysplasia.[en.wikipedia.org] Has a depressed level of consciousness (Glasgow Coma Score below 13). Has unexplained progressive or fluctuating symptoms. Has papilloedema, neck stiffness or fever.[patient.info] Small vessel disease involves the smaller arteries inside the brain: branches of the circle of Willis, middle cerebral artery, stem, and arteries arising from the distal vertebral[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    For example, it may be necessary to determine the utility of cerebral angiography to rule out vasculitis, carotid artery dissection, and other forms of nonath-erosclerotic[aafp.org] vasculopathy, or lumbar spinal puncture with cerebrospinal fluid evaluation may be required to rule out chronic infection or inflammation.[aafp.org]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Sickle cell disease Eclampsia or postpartum vasculopathy Infection Vasculitis Neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage Trauma In younger patients, vascular malformations, specifically[en.wikipedia.org] […] amyloid angiopathy Intracranial neoplasm Coagulopathy Hemorrhagic transformation of an ischemic stroke Cerebral venous thrombosis Sympathomimetic drug abuse Moyamoya disease[en.wikipedia.org] […] ipsilateral sensory loss, gaze paresis, skew deviation, miosis, or decreased level of consciousness Causes [ edit ] Hypertension Arteriovenous malformation Aneurysm rupture Cerebral[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Autopsies, performed in 2 patients, showed infarctions predominantly involving the posterior circulation territory, thrombosis in penetrating arteries, but no evidence of vasculitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Central Nervous System Vasculitis

    However, there is little histological support for lupus cerebritis, and cerebral vasculitis in SLE is uncommon. Vasculopathy on the other hand is seen often in SLE.[rheumatologyadvisor.com] Upon tapering of dexamethasone, she developed ataxia, dysarthria, and a fluctuating level of consciousness.[jrheum.org] This modality may enhance the test specificity in CNS vasculopathies. 18 Angiography Angiography is a vital diagnostic modality in evaluating patients with CNS vasculitis[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Acute Subdural Hematoma

  • Cerebral Angiitis

    However, there is little histological support for lupus cerebritis, and cerebral vasculitis in SLE is uncommon. Vasculopathy on the other hand is seen often in SLE.[rheumatologyadvisor.com] Nonfocal symptoms include headache, cognitive decline, confusion, fluctuating levels of consciousness, lethargy, and malaise.[ajnr.org] vasculopathy) producing symptoms by vasoconstriction rather than vasculitis. 21 Differentiation is crucial because immunosuppressive therapy beyond a short course of prednisone[the-rheumatologist.org]

  • Fetal Akinesia - Cerebral and Retinal Hemorrhage Syndrome

    • Malignancy and cerebral vasculitis• Drug-induced cerebral vasculitis 80.[slideshare.net] The main clinical manifestations consist of fluctuating levels of consciousness, abulia, apathy, disorientation, lack of insight and personality changes, contralateral emotional-facial[neupsykey.com] level of consciousness; common with toxic and metabolic disorders and acute febrile systemic infections dementia acquired and sustained loss of memory and other intellectual[strokecenter.org]
