Diagnosis of intracranial vasculitis: a multi-disciplinary approach

Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology

May 26, 1998

C T ChuC M Hulette

Abstract

Intracranial vasculitis, or primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS), is an uncommon, often fatal disorder that frequently responds to aggressive immunosuppressive therapy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cerebral angiography, and brain biopsy are diagnostic modalities t...read more

Cerebrovascular Disease

Cerebrovascular disease is an important cause of cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular disease here.

Hereditary Demyelinating Diseases Of The CNS

Hereditary demyelinating diseases of the central nervous systems are caused primarily due to inherited genetic conditions. Examples include Alexander, Canavan, and Pelizaeus-Merzbacher diseases. Here is the latest research.

Giant Cell Arteritis

Giant cell arteritis is a systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large arteries, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated giant cells. Discover the latest research on giant cell arteritis here.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Insomnia Familial Fatal

Fatal familial insomnia is a familial prion disease linked to a mutation of the prion protein gene. Here is the latest research on this rare genetic degenerative brain disorder.

Cerebral Small Vessel Diseases

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) includes several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Discover the latest research on CSVD here.

Alzheimer's Disease: Abeta

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques, which are comprised of amyloid beta. Here is the latest research in this field.

Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly known as Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), is a long-term systemic disorder that involves the formation of granulomas and inflammation of blood vessels.Discover the latest research on GPA here.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis is a condition of inflammation of the brain parenchyma, occurs as a result of infectious or autoimmune causes, and can lead to encephalopathy, seizures, focal neurological deficits, neurological disability, and death. Here is the latest research.

Alzheimer's Disease: Neuroimaging

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. Here is the latest research on neuroimaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, in AD.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.

Hypothalamic Vasculature

The interrelationship of hypothalamic neurons and pituitary cells with the vasculature is important role for regulating the pattern of neurohormone exposure. Discover new insights into hypothalamic vasculature with this feed.

Central Nervous System Vasculitis

Central nervous system vasculitis is a newly recognized inflammatory brain disease, which may develop as a primary condition, or secondary to an underlying systemic disease. Here is the latest research.

Myelin Plasticity

Myelin plasticity, as another form of activity-dependent plasticity, is relevant not only to nervous system development but also to complex information processing tasks that involve coupling and synchrony among different brain rhythms. Several cellular, molecular, and epigenetic mechanisms have been investigated as contributors to myelin plasticity. Find the latest research on myelin plasticity here.
