Cerebral Vasculitis

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.
