Fatal Foam Cell Arteritis of the Brain After Irradiation for Hodgkin's Disease: Angiography and Pathology
A case of foam cell arteritis of the brain following irradiation of the neighboring structures for Hodgkin's disease is described. A differential diagnosis of the unique angiographical findings is presented.
The etiology of foam cell arteritis restricted to the brain is considered. It is hoped that the experience of this case encourages a careful neuroradiological and neuropathological examination of the brain in all patients with Hodgkin's disease who present with the stroke syndrome.
