Abstract

PURPOSE. The Susac syndrome is a microangiopathy that leads to visual symptoms, hearing loss and neurological symptoms. CASE REPORT. We report on a young woman suffering from this syndrome who also presented the following signs and symptoms typical of a vasospastic syndrome; I) a history of cold hands, low blood pressure and migraine; 2) a typical alteration of conjunctival vessels; 3) prolonged flow arrest time after cooling in nailfold capillaromicroscopy; 4) increased resistivity in theorbital vessels measured by color Doppler imaging; and 5) an increased plasma level of endothelin-l. CONCLUSIONS. We postulate that the Susac syndrome is a manifestation of the vasospastic syndrome.
