  • Premature stroke and cardiovascular risk in primary Sjögren's syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Front Cardiovasc Med. 2022; 9:1048684.Zippel CL, Beider S, … Ernst D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Raynaud's phenomen as well as vasculitis and high ESSDAI have shown a significant association to CVD. PSS patients with cerebrovascular events were younger than expected. Knowledge about risk factors may help clinicians to identify pSS patients at risk for CVD. After diagnosis of pSS, patients should be screened for risk factors such as hypertension and receive appropriate therapy to prevent or at least reduce sequelae such as infarction. However, further investigations are necessary in order to achieve a reliable risk stratification for these patients.
  • Inflammatory Disorders of the Central Nervous System Vessels: Narrative Review. [Review]
    Medicina (Kaunas). 2022 Oct 13; 58(10)Ekkert A, Šaulytė M, Jatužis D
  • Inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system (CNS) vessels, also called CNS vasculitides, can cause substantial disability or even be fatal. Inflammation of the CNS vessels can be caused by primary angiitis of the CNS (PACNS), inflammatory cerebral amyloid angiopathy, or systemic inflammatory disorders. Clinical symptoms of these disorders are often non-specific, such as encephalopathy, c…
  • Outcomes among patients with primary angiitis of the CNS: A Nationwide United States analysis. [Journal Article]
    J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis. 2022 Nov; 31(11):106747.Patel SD, Oliver FO, … Saver JL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed PACNS is still a rare inflammatory disorder of the blood vessels of the central nervous system suggesting an annual hospitalization of 5.1 cases per 1,000,000 person-years in the more diverse and contemporary US population. Overall, 4 in 10 had unfavorable discharge outcome, being unable to be discharged home, and 1 in 20 died before discharge.
  • Diagnostic and therapeutic approach to adult central nervous system vasculitis. [Review]
    Rev Neurol (Paris). 2022 Dec; 178(10):1041-1054.Nehme A, Boulanger M, … de Boysson H
  • The clinical manifestations of central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis are highly variable. In the absence of a positive CNS biopsy, CNS vasculitis is particularly suspected when markers of both vascular disease and inflammation are present. To facilitate the clinical and therapeutic approach to this rare condition, CNS vasculitis can be classified according to the size of the involved vessels. V…
  • Primary Angiitis of the Central Nervous System: An Uncommon Cause of Stroke in the Young. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Aug; 14(8):e27799.Thekkekarott Kuruvila A, Ranawat N, … Arora A
  • Primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS) usually presents with symptoms of headache, cognitive impairment, or stroke with a mean age of onset at 50 years. Inflammation of the cerebral vessels can cause narrowing, occlusion, or thrombosis resulting in tissue ischemia and necrosis of the involved vessel territory. Findings can be seen on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans of the b…
  • A case of childhood unilateral relapsing primary angiitis of the central nervous system. [Case Reports]
    Neuropathology. 2022 Sep 11 [Online ahead of print]Onomura H, Furukawa S, … Ito Y
  • The patient was a 17-year-old girl with transient right-sided weakness and dysesthesia associated with headache and nausea. Head magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed white matter lesions confined to the left hemisphere. Initially, multiple sclerosis was suspected, and methylprednisolone (mPSL) pulse therapy was administered, followed by fingolimod hydrochloride. However, on day 267, the pati…
  • Isolated arteritis misdiagnosed as bilateral orbital tumors in a patient with acute ischemic stroke. [Case Reports]
    Radiol Case Rep. 2022 Oct; 17(10):3927-3932.Dziadkowiak E, Chojdak-Łukasiewicz J, … Bladowska J
  • Vasculitis is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by multifocal segmental inflammation of the small and medium vessels of the central nervous system. The predominant symptoms of cerebral vasculitis are stroke, headache, and encephalopathy. Additional symptoms include seizures, cranial nerve palsies, and myelopathy. Imaging techniques play a crucial role in identifying the diagnosis o…
  • Neuropsychiatric lupus erythematosus: Focusing on autoantibodies. [Review]
    J Autoimmun. 2022 10; 132:102892.Wang J, Xu J, Yang P
  • Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) frequently suffer from nervous system complications, termed neuropsychiatric lupus erythematosus (NPLE). NPLE accounts for the poor prognosis of SLE. Correct attribution of NP events to SLE is the primary principle in managing NPLE. The vascular injuries and neuroinflammation are the fundamental neuropathologic changes in NPLE. Specific autoantibod…
  • Primary CNS vasculitis (PCNSV): a cohort study. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2022 08 05; 12(1):13494.Agarwal A, Sharma J, … Vishnu VY
  • Primary CNS Vasculitis (PCNSV) is a rare inflammatory disorder affecting the blood vessels of the central nervous system. Patients present with a combination of headaches, seizures, and focal neurological deficits. There is usually a diagnostic delay. Treatment is based on observational studies and expert opinion. Our objective was to identify clinical, laboratory, neuroimaging, pathologic or man…
  • Pseudo-insular glioma syndrome: illustrative cases. [Case Reports]
    J Neurosurg Case Lessons. 2021 Dec 27; 2(26):CASE21481.Haddad AF, Young JS, … Berger MS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumor mimics should always be in the differential diagnosis of brain masses, including those involving the insula. The immediate preoperative MRI (within 24-48 hours of surgery) must be compared carefully with the initial presentation MRI to assess interval change that suggests tumor mimics to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention.
  • Childhood Cerebral Vasculitis : A Multidisciplinary Approach. [Review]
    Clin Neuroradiol. 2022 Jun 24 [Online ahead of print]Gupta N, Hiremath SB, … Wilson N
  • Cerebral vasculitis is increasingly recognized as a common cause of pediatric arterial stroke. It can present with focal neurological deficits, psychiatric manifestations, seizures, and encephalopathy. The etiopathogenesis of childhood cerebral vasculitis (CCV) is multifactorial, making an inclusive classification challenging. In this review, we describe the common and uncommon CCV with a compreh…
  • [Primary CNS Vasculitis - An Overview]. [Review]
    Ther Umsch. 2022 Jun; 79(5):247-253.Hammer H, Kamber N, … Salmen A
  • Primary CNS Vasculitis - An Overview Abstract. Cerebral vasculitis, especially the primary vasculitis of the central nervous systems (primary CNS vasculitis), are rare inflammatory diseases of the small- and medium-sized vessels of the CNS. The pathogenesis of primary CNS vasculitis is unclear. Infectious triggers are hypothesized to induce an activation of the immune system with resulting inflam…
  • A 14-year-old Girl with Right-Sided Weakness and Speech Difficulty. [Case Reports]
    Neurohospitalist. 2022 Apr; 12(2):408-412.Moore C, Pollard R, … Kammeyer R
  • We herein report a case of Childhood Primary Central Nervous System (CNS) Angiitis. This case consisted of a 14-year-old girl who presented with right-sided weakness, aphasia, and a fever. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the brain showed multifocal areas of ischemia. Magnetic Resonance Angiography of the head and neck showed narrowing and irregularities of the left middle cerebral artery and righ…
  • Inpatient Management of Encephalopathy. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Feb; 14(2):e22102.Reddy P, Culpepper K
  • Unexplained encephalopathy is a common occurrence in tertiary care centers and neurologic disorders should be considered after ruling out the infectious, toxic and metabolic etiologies. Neuroimaging combined with a thorough history and examination is often helpful in ruling out stroke and fulminant demyelinating encephalopathies. Autoimmune encephalopathy should be suspected in any patient with u…
  • A Case of Metastatic CNS Melanoma of Unknown Primary Presenting with Seizures. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Med. 2022; 2022:3099750.Nguyen V, Aboulenain S, … Perez Parra S
  • Seizures are a common occurrence. The goal of evaluating a seizure is to identify the etiology and to determine the likelihood of recurrence as well as guide management. We present a unique presentation of a 47-year-old female that presented with late onset seizures admitted due to status epilepticus. Brain magnetic resonance indicated diffuse supratentorial hemorrhagic lesions. Neurological work…
