Abstract

Granulomatous angiitis of the central nervous system (GACNS) is a rare cerebrovascular disorder. It usually presents with multifocal neurologic symptoms symptoms including stroke, encephalopathy, and headache. A limited number of case reports describe neurological deficits resulting from GACNS as the manifesting symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). We describe the case of a patient with neurological symptoms from GACNS that led to the diagnosis of HL, as well as a literature review focusing on the association between GACNS and HL.
