Atypical progressive stroke syndrome associated with oral contraceptives and cigarette use
We report a case of progressive multifocal intracranial distal arterial branch occlusive disease in a young adult who smoked heavily and used oral contraceptives. The distribution of the angiographic lesions and the associated telangiectasias and rete mirabile resemble Moya-Moya disease except for clearly absent proximal carotid arterial disease. This type of distal multifocal cerebral arterial occlusive pattern appears to be a very rare manifestation of cigarette and oral contraceptive use.doi:10.1161/01.str.18.2.519 pmid:3564112 fatcat:wt2oxclpgfhsboir26ckjobjp4
