The Blood-Brain Barrier: Implications for Vasculitis.

Neurol Clin. 2019 May;37(2):235-248

Authors: Younger DS

There has been extraordinary research in the blood-brain barrier. Once considered a static anatomic barrier to the traffic of molecules in and out of the central nervous system when fully developed in adults, the blood-brain barrier is now known to be not only fully functional in development but also vital in cerebrovascular angiogenesis. Blood-brain barrier breakdown has been recognized as an important factor in a variety of primary neurologic diseases; however, such disturbances have yet to be critically analyzed. This article reviews the history, neurodevelopment, ultrastructure, function, and clinicopathologic correlation and relevance to central nervous system vasculitis.
