Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Fibromuscular dysplasia is a relatively uncommon multifocal arterial disease of unknown cause, characterized by nonatherosclerotic abnormalities involving the smooth muscle, fibrous and elastic tissue, of small- to medium-sized arterial walls. Cerebrovascular lesions may include arterial dissection and aneurysms. The most common neurologic symptoms are nonspecific, including headaches, vertigo, pulsatile tinnitus, sudden hearing loss, altered mentation, neck pain, and syncope.
