Management of Neurologic Manifestations in Patients with Liver Disease.
Abstract OPINION STATEMENT: Liver disease, both in its acute and chronic forms, can be associated with a wide spectrum of neurologic manifestations, both central and peripheral, ranging in severity from subclinical changes to neurocritical conditions. Neurologists are frequently consulted to participate in their management. In this review, we present an overview of management strategies for patients with hepatic disease whose clinical course is complicated by neurologic manifestations. Type A hepatic encephalopathy (HE), which occurs in acute liver failure, is a neurologic emergency, and multiple measures should b...

Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome Presenting as Coma (P4.354)
Conclusions: RCVS rarely can present with coma and multifocal infarctions. Exact pathophysiology remains unknown but disruption of sympathetic tone and endothelial dysfunction have been implicated. A high index of suspicion is required to minimize disease complications and prevent improper withdrawal of care.Disclosure: Dr. Khan has nothing to disclose. Dr. Adcock has nothing to disclose.

Imaging of a Fatal Air Embolism from ERCP (P4.363)
CONCLUSIONS: Though most of the occurrences in relation to ERCP are portal venous air embolisms, which are absorbed spontaneously, serious and sometimes fatal complications have occurred including arterial air embolisms causing multiorgan damage including cerebral infarcts. Case history, pertinent imaging and pathological findings are discussed to bring awareness of this rare complication of ERCP and emphasize its early recognition. Disclosure: Dr. Jens has nothing to disclose. Dr. Lee has nothing to disclose. Dr. Ibrahimi has nothing to disclose.

Stroke in HIV-infected African Americans: a retrospective cohort study
Abstract The risk of having a first stroke is nearly twice as high among African Americans compared to Caucasians. HIV/AIDS is an independent risk factor for stroke. Our study aimed to report the risk factors and short-term clinical outcomes of African Americans with HIV infection and new-onset stroke admitted at the Johns Hopkins Hospitals (2000–2012). Multivariate linear regression was used to examine the association between potential predictors and odds of an unfavorable outcome, defined as a higher modified Rankin Scale (mRS) score on hospital discharge. African Americans comprised 105/125 (84 %) of HIV-inf...

HCV, but not HIV, is a risk factor for cerebral small vessel disease
Conclusions: This tissue-based analysis of cerebral arteriolar disease demonstrates that HCV constitutes an independent risk, in addition to African American race, hypertension, and cART. Further study is needed to understand what aspects of HCV and cART contribute to cerebrovascular neuropathogenesis.
