A 39-year-old woman presented with multiple branch retinal artery occlusions almost three years before developing a mass lesion containing calcium in the left frontal lobe. Brain biopsy revealed a small vessel vasculitis and ischemic necrosis of brain with dystrophic calcification. We believe this to be the first case of primary CNS vasculitis with branch retinal artery occlusions and brain calcification.
