We therefore explored three hypotheses regarding CNS vasculitis associated with autoimmune disease: 1) MR imaging is highly sensitive; 2) a typical MR appearance exists; and, 3) MR and angiographic findings correlate well. METHODS We studied 18 patients with CNS vasculitis associated with autoimmune disease, characterized the MR lesions by type, size, number, and location… CONTINUE READING
