A 28-year-old woman presented with generalised livedo reticularis, dementia, epilepsy, and pyramidal and extrapyramidal signs. Multiple focal infarcts were seen on MRI. Angiography demonstrated widespread cerebromeningeal angiomatosis with multiple small and medium size arterial occlusions. A lifelong personal and family history of mental handicap in the absence of anticardiolipin antibodies suggests Divry-Van Bogaert syndrome, not previously been reported in a female. Similarities to Sneddon's syndrome are discussed.
