Abstract

Cerebral angiography may sometimes show up inflammatory changes in the brain arteries in cases of tuberculous and acute purulent bacterial meningitis. The arteries at the base of the brain are predominantly affected, in some cases together with peripheral branches. Normal angiograms or non-specific alterations may be expected in patients suffering from non-purulent meningitis and encephalitis. Patients with luetic diseases show circumscribed or diffuse vessel wall lesions which cannot be differentiated from alterations caused by arteriosclerosis. The results are presented of 15 patients suffering from inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system of different aetiology. The morphology and the distribution of the arterial changes in the cerebral angiogram are discussed.
