Cerebral Vasculitis

Cerebral Vasculitis Symptoms and Causes

Vasculitis is an inflammation of the vascular system, in this particular case, within the cerebrum. The presence of inflammatory cells in and around blood vessels causes a narrowing or blockage of the blood vessels that nourish the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves. Symptoms include headaches, fever, rapid weight loss, and confusion or forgetfulness.
