Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

MRI demonstrates multiple cerebral microhaemorrhages best seen on gradient echo sequence. These are randomly scattered through the brain, largely sparing the basal ganglia and more pronounced in the periphery. A larger haemorrhage is noted in the occipital lobe on the left.

Case Discussion

The findings are characteristic of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA).
