TAKAYASU arteritis is a large vessel vasculitis of the aorta and its primary branches.1 Severe cases may involve complete occlusion of aortic arch branch vessels as noted in the computerized tomography from this 28-yr-old woman. Three-dimensional (A) and coronal (B) images from a contrast-enhanced computerized tomography demonstrate irregular severe stenosis of the right common carotid artery (red arrows) and complete occlusions of bilateral subclavian arteries (yellow arrows), the left common carotid artery (white brackets), and the left vertebral artery (white arrow inA). Note the hypertrophied right vertebral artery (gr...

Authors: Mavrogeni SI, Kitas G, Lamb HJ, Psychoyios K, Dimitroulas T, Koutsogeorgopoulou L, Boki K, Vartela V, Kolovou G, Markousis-Mavrogenis G, Kallenberg CG, Guillevin L, Vassilopoulos D Abstract Systemic vasculitides (SVs) is a group of diseases characterised by inflammation/necrosis of the blood vessel wall in various organs. Simultaneous brain and heart involvement is a cause of increased morbidity/mortality in SV. We aimed to present evidence of concurrent brain/heart involvement in SV and the role of a combined brain/heart magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in their risk stratification. Cerebral vasculitis (C...

Chronic meningitis is a syndrome defined by the presence of clinical signs and symptoms of meningitis or meningoencephalitis with a persisting cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) pleocytosis that are present for at least 4 weeks. The differential diagnosis is broad, with categories including neoplastic, paraneoplastic, autoimmune, and noninfectious inflammatory disorders and central nervous system (CNS) infections. The exact frequency of the different etiologies often varies tremendously across reports; however, among most institutions, common infectious causes of chronic meningitis includeMycobacterium tuberculosis and fungal men...

AbstractGastrointestinal cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease in ANCA-associated vasculitis is associated with significant morbidity. Studies should be performed to identify the epidemiology and risk factors for CMV disease in AAV so that vulnerable patients may be risk-stratified for consideration of preventive strategies such as surveillance and pre-emptive therapy or anti-viral prophylaxis. Given the absence of evidence-based guidelines for prevention of CMV disease in patients with AAV receiving potent immunosuppressive therapy, further risk-benefit studies are required to ascertain if preventive strategies will reduce CMV-re...

We report, to our knowledge, the only case of spontaneous rupture of a branch of the left colic artery and the right gastric artery, possibly secondary to vasculitis. PMID: 29658342 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: McBrien CN, Menzies-Gow A Abstract Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a rare but potentially life-threatening antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis which affects, to varying degrees, the lungs, paranasal sinuses, heart, kidneys, skin and peripheral nervous system. It is strongly associated with asthma. Peripheral eosinophilia is a defining feature of EGPA and eosinophilic inflammation is often observed in biopsies of affected tissues. Acute and chronic management focuses on the control of inflammation with systemic corticosteroids and other immunosuppressants...

CONCLUSION: A diagnosis of syphilitic stroke should be suspected in young patients as a manifestation of syphilis, and tests for neurosyphilis should be routine in neurology departments to make a prompt diagnosis, thereby preventing psychological sequelae.

Conclusions: These results confirm high frequency ultrasound is a valid, objective measure of granuloma burden in cutaneous sarcoidosis and represents a novel, non-invasive measure of disease severity that correlates to the previously validated CSAMI clinical severity score and histopathology evaluation.
