Subacute brainstem angioencephalopathy: favorable outcome with anticoagulation therapy

Subacute brainstem angioencephalopathy: favorable outcome with anticoagulation therapy

Journal of the Neurological Sciences 275(1-2): 167-169

We present a patient who developed progressive neurological disease caused by lesions histologically compatible with those observed in subacute brainstem angioencephalopathy. The patient was treated with low-molecular weight heparin, and treatment response was monitored clinically and with MRI. Anticoagulation therapy stopped progression of the neurological deficit and led to improvement of MRI findings.
