Abstract

Background

Neuropathological data are very scarce in systemic sclerosis and fail to demonstrate primary changes in the brains of such patients.

Conclusion

The neuropathological findings in these two patients suggest that systemic sclerosis may induce primary vascular changes in the brain, of which calcification may be a marker. (Stroke. 1998;29:719-721.)
