Abstract

A 55-year-old man was admitted due to transient global amnesia. A similar episode recurred. He also presented with uveitis and oral ulcers. Brain MRI showed lesions in the brainstem and medial thalamus. One year later he was readmit-ted due to subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral angiography revealed normal. The last two episodes were treated with a high dose of prednisolone and resolved completely. Vasculitis related to neuro-Behcet's disease is presumed to play a role in the development of transient global amnesia and subarachnoid hemorrhage. (J Korean Neurol Assoc 19(4):396~399, 2001)
