Aggressive Medical Care in Young Chinese Patients with Ischemic Stroke of Undetermined Etiology: A Retrospective Study
This study aimed to investigate the clinical and angiographic characteristics of ischemic stroke of undetermined etiology in young Chinese adults and to observe the effects of medication on their long-term outcomes. Methods: A total of 179 consecutive young patients with ischemic stroke of undetermined etiology were retrospectively analyzed for clinical and angiographic characteristics, laboratory tests, the choice of drug treatment, and follow-up outcomes. Any predictive power for recurrent stroke and new lesions or aggravated stenosis was analyzed. Results: 170 patients were clinically followed up for a median of 25 mont...

Stroke and temporal arteritis: A study of 6 cases
ConclusionsStroke caused by giant cell arteritis is a serious and potentially severe condition which requires a high level of suspicion and early treatment with corticosteroids. New diagnostic techniques contribute to refining patient assessment and identifying the optimal treatment. Endovascular treatment may be a valid therapeutic option in selected patients.ResumenIntroducciónAunque la asociación de arteritis de la temporal e ictus isquémico no es frecuente, su diagnóstico y su manejo posterior plantean serias dificultades, requiriendo un alto índice de sospecha.MétodosAnalizamos una serie de 6 pacientes con arter...

Hashimoto encephalopathy with angiographic CNS vasculitis
Hashimoto encephalopathy (HE)—also known as steroid-responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis—is a rare syndrome loosely associated with Hashimoto thyroiditis. HE mostly affects middle-aged women; is characterized by delirium, seizures, and myoclonus; and is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder. The pathophysiology of HE is not entirely understood. Most cases appear to be due to autoimmune vasculitis or an immune complex deposition that disrupts the cerebral microvasculature. This immunologic phenomenon has been observed on brain biopsy with a lymphocytic infiltration around small ar...

Great Vessels of Children: Takayasu's Arteritis.
Abstract Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a granulomatous, large vessel vasculitis affecting primarily the aorta and its main branches. It is characterized by inflammation in the blood vessel wall, leading to either luminal occlusion or dilatation with aneurysm formation. The etiology of TA is unknown, but there seems to be a strong role for cell-mediated autoimmunity in the pathogenesis of this disease. TA most commonly presents in young women in their second and third decades of life, but has been reported in children as young as age 2 years. The symptoms can range from vague systemic complaints to catastrophic stro...

Neurological Involvement in Primary Systemic Vasculitis
Conclusion Neurological involvement is a common complication of PSV (Table 1), and neurologists play an important role in the identification and diagnosis of PSV patients with otherwise unexplained neurological symptoms as their chief complaint. This article summarizes the neurological manifestations of PSV and hopes to improve neuroscientists' understanding of this broad range of diseases. TABLE 1 Table 1. Common CNS and PNS involvements of primary systemic vasculitis. Author Contributions SZ conceived the article and wrote the manuscript. DY and GT reviewed and edited the manuscript. All authors ...

Contrast-Induced Encephalopathy after Cerebral Angiogram: A Case Series and Review of Literature
We present 4 individual cases of CIE who presented with stroke-mimic symptoms following surgery with localized iodixanol or ioversol injection. We outline a clinical timeline of all patients, showing that CIE follows a general pattern of delayed onset, worsening symptomology, and ultimately full recovery. All patients received IV hydration, corticosteroids, or both as part of their treatment protocol.Case Rep Neurol 2021;13:405 –413
