Multifocal patchy white matter hyperintensities in the centrum semiovale as well as subarachnoid parietal hemorrhage (b, arrows) Wegener’s-associated vasculitis can lead to arterial or venous thrombosis as well as hemorrhage (Kelley 2004). Since the caliber of the affected vessels (50-300 lm in diameter) may be beyond the spatial resolution of DSA, and lesions of the brain parenchyma itself are rare, radiologically confirmed CNS vasculitis in Wegener’s granulomatosis is exceptional; however, involvement of the dura with pachymeningitis may be detected on MR imaging after contrast administration (Chin and Latov 2005).
