It is now known that thrombo-angiitis is a disease which is not limited to the extremities. In the recent literature much stress has been laid upon the fact that the vascular lesions associated with thrombo-angiitis obliterans frequently involve the coronary arteries, or that the disease of the coronary arteries is frequently associated with thrombo-angiitis. It is the purpose of this paper to emphasize another complication of thrombo-angiitis obliterans, namely, involvement of the cerebral vessels.
We have been able to find in the literature 23 cases in which involvement of the cerebral arteries was associated with thrombo-angiitis obliterans of the extremities.
