The article focuses on the study of the 37-year-old woman presented in the emergency department with a 3-day history of continuous headache. The vasculitis of the central nervous system is classified as either primary or secondary. The wide variability in clinical presentation and the inability to easily obtain tissue for histologic confirmation contribute to the difficulty in making a definitive diagnosis.
