Cerebral Arteritis

Cerebral arteritis, secondary to collagen vascular disease or granulomatous disease, can also result in multifocal periventricular hyperintensities. Moreover, these diseases occur in young adults and can produce a neurologic picture similar to that of MS. Associated systemic features are important diagnostic clues for vasculitis, and the brain images usually reveal cortical infarcts in addition to the periventricular lesions. Endnote
