Abstract

A 56-year-old man with behavioural disorders and facial-brachio-crural right hemiparesis presented with a brain lesion studied with computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and brain biopsy, leading to the diagnosis of cerebral vasculitis. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in a phase of activity, without cryoglobulins, was also detected. Brain biopsy, laboratory analysis and response to a specific therapy supported the diagnosis of central nervous system vasculitis that was HCV related.
