FINAL DIAGNOSIS: Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy with Angiitis
The similar duration [Delayed] in development of HZCR and hemiplegia following HZO and the histopathological findings of granulomatous angiitis in both cerebral and choroidal vessels [6,9] supports the assumption that occlusive choroidal vasculitis is the underlying mechanism in HZCR.
According to the revised Japanese criteria for the diagnosis of MPA put forward by the National Study Group of Angiitis, the diagnosis of 'definite MPA' is made in the existence of one of the two following conditions: MPO-ANCA is detected in patients presenting with both rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) and pulmonary hemorrhage or histological evidence is demonstrated in patients presenting with more than any two of the following three symptoms: (I) RPGN, (II) pulmonary hemorrhage and (III) other symptoms, such as purpura, subcutaneous hemorrhage, gastrointestinal bleeding and mononeuritis multiplex (1,11,12).
It is important to note that a negative test does not exclude WG, and positive results can be seen in other vasculitides, including microscopic polyangiitis and allergic granulomatous angiitis.

These considerations and the lack of evidence for an ischaemic pathogenesis in our extensive paraclinical testing also argue against systemic vasculitides, vertebral artery dissection and primary CNS angiitis.
1, 2) For example, the large vessel vasculitides include giant cell or temporal arteritis and Takayasu arteritis; medium-sized vessel vasculitic syndromes include polyarteritis nodosa, Kawasaki's disease, and isolated angiitis of the CNS.
