14 Possible Causes for Cerebral Vasculitis or Vasculopathy, Patient Appears Acutely Ill

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    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]

  • Stroke

  • 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] vasculopathy) producing symptoms by vasoconstriction rather than vasculitis. 21 Differentiation is crucial because immunosuppressive therapy beyond a short course of prednisone[the-rheumatologist.org] In SLE, neurological damage can be a result of direct antibody-mediated tissue damage or damage to the vessels supplying the tissues (cerebral vasculitis).[rheumatologyadvisor.com]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    cerebral arteries.[web.archive.org] , any patient in whom Kawasaki disease is strongly suspected should receive echocardiography because abnormalities that aid in diagnosis may appear within the first 10 days[aafp.org] Pathological associations Kawasaki disease is a systemic vasculitis which seems to have a predilection to coronary arteries, although it has also been shown to affect the[web.archive.org]

  • 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]

  • Renal Infarction

    Though varicella vasculopathy is an infection related vasculitis, it usually affect medium and large vessels, mostly cerebral vasculature.[indianjnephrol.org] It commonly presents with acute stroke, ataxia or blindness; however involvement of peripheral vessels is infrequent. [3] The diagnosis of varicella vasculopathy usually rest[indianjnephrol.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]
