Association of Lupuslike Anticoagulant and Nonvasculitic Cerebral Infarction

Arch Neurol. 1986;43(8):851-852. doi:10.1001/archneur.1986.00520080089033

• The lupus anticoagulant has been theoretically linked with cerebrovascular dysfunction. All previously described patients, however, have had other con-comitant conditions known to predispose them to stroke. The patient described herein demonstrates the association of a lupuslike anticoagulant with thrombotic vascular occlusion in the central nervous system in the absence of other causes of vasculopathy.
