We encountered two patients with sumatriptan-induced reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS). The present patients were taking sumatriptan for the first time because they had been tentatively diagnosed with a migraine. On reviewing the literature, we found nine other cases of triptan-induced RCVS, predominantly among women aged 30 to 40 years. RCVS has been precipitated by triptan at the first ever use, after daily use, and even with long-term use at a normal dose. Patients with acute onset of severe headache should be thoroughly evaluated, and triptan should be administered appropriately...

Some of the potential implications of Brexit for the veterinary profession were highlighted during the BVA Congress at the London Vet Show last week. A session run jointly by the BVA and the RCVS gave delegates the chance to hear how the two organisations are approaching the issue and discuss their own concerns. Kathryn Clark reports.

Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by segmental vasospasm and it is often accompanied by either posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome or stroke. However, other MRI abnormalities have rarely been reported. A 28-year-old woman presented with a thunderclap headache immediately after delivery; MRI showed segmental vasoconstriction and an abnormal signal in the splenium of the corpus callosum. Neuroimaging abnormalities normalized 20 days after the first examination. Only two cases of RCVS with transient splenial lesions (TSL) have so far been reported...

BACKGROUND: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) are both rare disorders. The pathophysiology of both diseases is not yet fully understood. METHODS: We report the unique case of a 19-year-old comatose woman who was brought to the ER after a series of generalized tonic-clonic seizures 6 days post peridural anesthesia for cesarean section. Vital signs and initial laboratory testing including urine analysis and drug screening were unremarkable...

BACKGROUND: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), also known as Call-Fleming syndrome, is characterized by thunderclap headaches, non-aneurysmal segmental cerebral vasoconstriction seen on arteriogram, and spontaneously resolves within twelve weeks. Fingolimod has been reported to cause posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) and one case of RCVS. OBJECTIVE: We report a case of RCVS possibly related to fingolimod use, and compare to cases of adverse outcomes in fingolimod use...

OBJECTIVE: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is an underestimated cause of thunderclap headache that shares many characteristics with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This fact makes the two easily confused by emergency physicians. This study evaluated the clinical manifestations, radiological features, and outcomes of patients with RCVS. METHODS: The electronic medical records of 18 patients meeting the diagnostic criteria of RCVS at our emergency department between January 2013 and December 2014 were retrospectively reviewed...

Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is a disease characterized by thunderclap headache with severe vasospasm of middle sized vessels of circle of Willis or the extracranial circulation which spontaneously revert back. We report a middle aged female with severe headache and vasospasm of the vertebral arteries and vessels of circle of Willis causing multiple cerebral infarcts. The vasospasm resolved within 3 months.

INTRODUCTION: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) typically affects young patients and left untreated can result in hemorrhage or ischemic stroke. Though the disorder has been well characterized in the literature, the most appropriate way to diagnose, treat, and evaluate therapeutic response remains unclear. In previous studies, transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) has shown elevated velocities indicative of vasospasm. This imaging modality is noninvasive and inexpensive; an attractive option for diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring if it is sensitive enough to detect changes in the acute setting given that RCVS often affects the distal vessels early in the course of disease...

Cerebellar volume declines with aging. Few studies have investigated age differences in regional cerebellar volume (RCV) and their association with motor and cognitive function. In 213 healthy older adults, we investigated the association of age with motor skills, cognition and RCV. Subsequently, we studied the association of RCV with motor skills and cognition. RCVs were derived from T1-weighted MRI scans using the automated SUIT segmentation method and clustered using principal component analysis (PCA). Motor skill (manual dexterity, tapping speed, bimanual visuomotor coordination, grip force) and cognition (mental rotation, verbal memory, inhibition, mental flexibility) were assessed...

Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by thunderclap headaches with diffuse segmental constriction of cerebral arteries that resolves spontaneously within 3 months. We report on a case of a 13-year-old boy presenting with acute severe headaches, triggered by physical exertion. His past medical history was uneventful. Moderate headache persisted between exacerbations for 4 weeks. He secondarily presented with signs of intracranial hypertension. Brain magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) revealed multifocal narrowing of the cerebral arteries...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is a vascular headache disorder characterized by severe headaches with vasospasm of cerebral arteries. Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) has been widely applied and validated in studying vasospasm of intracranial vessels, but the role of TCD in the diagnosis and monitoring of RCVS is less well established. We sought to determine the reliability of TCD for diagnosis and monitoring of RCVS. METHODS: Patients admitted to an inpatient neurology service between 2011 and 2014 with a discharge diagnosis of RCVS were retrospectively analyzed for demographics, neuroimaging, and functional outcomes...

REVIEW
Maryna Skliut, Dara G Jamieson
Pregnant women are most likely to have primary headaches, such as migraine and tension-type headaches, which can be diagnosed and treated without brain imaging. Primary headaches may even start de novo during pregnancy, especially in the first few months. However, when the headache occurs late in pregnancy or in the peripartum period, secondary causes of headaches need to be considered and evaluated by brain and/or vascular imaging, generally using magnetic resonance techniques. There is considerable overlap between the cerebrovascular complications of pregnancy, including preeclampsia/eclampsia, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), and both hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes; although, their imaging may be distinctive...

BACKGROUND: Biological variation is used in the calculation of reference change values (RCVs) for a delta check. In this study, we examined the correlation between intra-individual biological coefficients of variation (CVI) and delta check limits according to population distribution. METHODS: A total of 1,533,359 paired test results of nine routine chemistry tests were used to make the population distributions of delta percent changes. Their 0.5th, 2.5th, 97.5th, and 99...

BACKGROUND: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by segmental vasospasm. Vasoactive agents and childbirth have been reported as precipitating factors for RCVS; however, RCVS induced by altitude change or air travel has rarely been reported. CASE: We present a case of a 74-year-old woman who presented with thunderclap headache during airplane descent. Magnetic resonance angiography demonstrated segmental vasoconstriction that improved 9 days after onset...
