Abstract

Article abstract

We present a female adolescent with intermittently progressive neurologic deficits over a period of 7 years. Serial imaging studies showed a calcifying lesion with increasing enhancement, signal abnormalities from the subcortex to the medulla, and hemispheric volume loss. Stereotactic biopsies disclosed a hyalinizing and calcifying vasculopathy involving the penetrating vessels. The vasculopathy may result in ischemic lesions responsible for the severe deficits.
