Name Intracranial Arteriosclerosis
Synonyms Arterioscleroses, Cerebral | Arterioscleroses, Intracranial | Arteriosclerosis, Cerebral | Arteriosclerosis, Intracranial | Atheroscleroses, Cerebral | Atheroscleroses, Intracranial | Atherosclerosis, Cerebral | Atherosclerosis, Intracranial | Cerebral Arterioscleroses | Cerebral Arteriosclerosis | Cerebral Atheroscleroses | Cerebral Atherosclerosis | Intracranial Arterioscleroses | Intracranial Atheroscleroses | Intracranial Atherosclerosis
Definition Vascular diseases characterized by thickening and hardening of the walls of ARTERIES inside the SKULL. There are three subtypes: (1) atherosclerosis with fatty deposits in the ARTERIAL INTIMA; (2) Monckeberg's sclerosis with calcium deposits in the media and (3) arteriolosclerosis involving the small caliber arteries. Clinical signs include HEADACHE; CONFUSION; transient blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX); speech impairment; and HEMIPARESIS.
