Drug-induced cerebrovascular disease
The best known link between therapeutic drugs and cerebrovascular disease includes hemorrhagic and thromboembolic complications reported in patients on anticoagulant therapy. Clinical manifestations of drug-induced cerebrovascular disease are no different from cerebrovascular disease due to other causes. Prognosis varies according to the pathology of the drug-induced process, with most cases of vasculitis and vasospasm resolving when the offending medication is discontinued.
