    Abstract

    Three patients with skin or muscle biopsy evidence of small vessel vasculitis presented with neurological symptoms: (1) frequent transient ischaemic attacks, (2) myalgia with encephalopathy, and (3) myalgia with marked weakness. The diagnosis of small vessel vasculitis needs consideration especially if presentation with polyneuropathy or cutaneous involvement is associated with elevation of ESR or serum immunoglobulins. Neurological illness may be a more common presentation of small vessel vasculitis than previously recognised.
