Answer

Presenting features of systemic vasculitides (eg, polyarteritis nodosa, Churg-Strauss syndrome, Wegener granulomatosis, and Behçet disease) may include personality changes. Other symptoms, such as weight loss and fever, usually occur. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows characteristic lesions of vasculitis.
