Moyamoya disease is a rare chronic and progressive cerebrovascular disease of the arteries of the circle of Willis that can affect children and adults. It has been associated with multiple diseases, including immunologic, like Graves' disease, diabetes mellitus, and SLE. Hyperlipidemia has been recognized in patients with Moyamoya disease with an incidence of 27-37%. However, no case in pediatric patients has been reported of the coexistence of Moyamoya disease and hyperlipidemia. Here we present a case of a 9-year-old female diagnosed with Moyamoya disease after a stroke with incidental finding of familial hypercholesterolemia...

Lymphadenopathy could represent a vast spectrum of etiologies including infectious and non-infectious diseases. Besides proper history taking, physical examination, and laboratory investigations, a tissue diagnosis is often necessary to unmask the cause of generalized lymphadenopathy. Here we present a 23-year-old woman who was admitted for diffuse generalized lymphadenopathy, fatigue, malaise, weight loss, nausea, and bilateral lower extremity edema. She reported a history of seizures as well as stroke 2 years prior with no other medical conditions present...

Central nervous system damage, a major organ manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), causes significant morbidity and mortality. Designating this condition as neuropsychiatric SLE (NPSLE), the American College of Rheumatology defines it as involving the central and peripheral nervous systems and being characterized by various manifestations including stroke, seizures, and psychosis. NPSLE treatment mainly seeks to reduce damage accrual. In patients with NPSLE, the use of high-dose corticosteroids is recommended in combination with immunosuppressants, such as mycophenolate mofetil and intravenous cyclophosphamide pulse therapy...

PURPOSE: Stroke-like episodes (SLEs) are a hallmark of various mitochondrial disorders, in particular MELAS syndrome. SLEs manifest with vasogenic oedema (DWI and ADC hyperintensity) or partial cytotoxic oedema (DWI hyperintensity, ADC hypointensity) in the acute and subacute stage, and with gyriform T1-hyperintensity (cortical necrosis) in the chronic stage. PRINCIPAL RESULTS: SLEs must be clearly distinguished from ischaemic stroke, since management of these two entities is different...

OBJECTIVE: The ratio of the maternal plasma angiogenic factors soluble Fms-kinase 1 (sFlt-1) and placental growth factor (PlGF) is a novel diagnostic tool for preeclampsia (PE), with a value <38 predicting short-term absence of PE in women in whom the syndrome is suspected clinically. The clinical implication of a single determination below the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio of 38 beyond 1 week remains to be established. We therefore assessed the evolution of the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio in patients suspected of PE on clinical grounds...

The central nervous system manifestations of SLE (neuropsychiatric lupus, NPSLE) occur frequently, though are often difficult to diagnose and treat. Symptoms of NPSLE can be quite diverse, including chronic cognitive and emotional manifestations, as well as acute presentations, such as stroke and seizures. Although the pathogenesis of NPSLE has yet to be well characterized, B-cell mediated damage is believed to be an important contributor. B-cells and autoantibodies may traverse the blood brain barrier promoting an inflammatory environment consisting of glia activation, neurodegeneration, and consequent averse behavioral outcomes...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is associated with an elevated risk of vascular complications, including premature stroke. Therapies targeting leukocyte recruitment may be beneficial in reducing vascular complications associated with SLE. Lupus was induced in female wild-type (WT) and P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 deficient (Psgl-1(-/-)) mice with pristane. Stroke was induced following photochemical injury to the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Stroke size was increased in pristane-treated WT mice compared to non-pristane-treated WT controls...

We aimed to evaluate the clinical and pathologic features of two common medical illnesses and their appropriate workup and pathognomonic findings. A 57-year-old white male presented with a new onset expressive aphasia while traveling abroad. He was evaluated at an outside facility and underwent workup for a stroke. The evaluation included a CT and MRI of the brain demonstrating three new enhancing lesions, the largest of which was a 2.5 cm ring-enhancing cystic lesion. A CT of the chest noted a 4-cm cystic thyroid lesion that was diagnosed as a thyroid cancer with brain metastases...

Atherosclerosis is a disease characterized by plaque formation due to an accumulation of fat, cholesterol, and immune cells in the walls of arteries. If a plaque ruptures, an occlusive thrombosis may form that causes either a heart attack or stroke. Macrophages express CB-2 receptors, and are one type of immune cell that plays a role in plaque destabilization and rupture. Endocannabinoids anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG) have been found to have activity on CB-1 and CB-2 receptors throughout the body and immune system...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been recognized as a major cause of morbidity in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), but it is not clear whether increased awareness of these risks has translated into improvements in CVD morbidity at the population level. The aim of this study was to examine trends in hospitalization rates for CVD events in a representative sample of adult patients with SLE in the US from 1996 to 2012. METHODS: We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample to estimate the rates of hospitalization for acute myocardial infarction (MI), unstable angina, and ischemic stroke from 1996 to 2012 in patients with SLE...
