Immune-Complex Allergic Vasculitis in Association with the Immune-Complex Allergic Vasculitis in Association with the Development of Transverse Myelitis: A Case Report.
In: Angiology, Vol. 47, Nr. 11: S. 1107-1110
A severe vasculitis, probably therapy related, in a sixty-four-year-old man being treated for possible subacute bacterial endocarditis, was associated with the development of transverse myelitis. It is hypothesized that the vasculitis affected the small vessels to the spinal cord in the same way that systemic vasculitis can also cause a transverse myelitis.
