Abstract

BackgroundThere is limited neuropathologic information available from cases of Sneddon's syndrome in which strokes are associated with livedo reticularis. Pathogenesis of the syndrome is controversial, although current opinion favors a coagulopathy, often with antiphospholipid antibodies. We describe a case lacking antiphospholipid antibodies but having a granulomatous infiltration of the leptomeninges.
