Abstract

Cerebral vasculitis may occur in isolation or in conjunction with a systemic illness. Although a relatively infrequent cause of intracerebral or subarachnoid hemorrhage, it should be considered in a setting of relevant systemic symptoms, an unexplained progressive neurologic disorder, or in a patient lacking risk factors for hemorrhagic stroke. Diagnosis may be difficult because the results of most studies may be normal or nonspecific. Because treatment is effective in many of the cerebral vasculitides, vigorous pursuit of the diagnosis is warranted.
