Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 35-year-old previously healthy woman developed left hemiparesis sixteen weeks after the onset of right herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Cerebral angiography showed complete occlusion of right middle cerebral artery at the origin and segmental narrowing of the right posterior cerebral artery. Computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) also revealed a right hemispheric lesion consistent with angiographic findings. Reports from the literature along with the present case suggest that arteritis followed by cerebral infarction is the most probable cause of delayed contralateral hemiparesis.
