Show Summary Details

Preview

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a very common condition among geriatric patients. Hemorrhage ensues from breakage of fragile amyloid-laden arteries and arterioles predominantly in the grey-white matter junction regions and the pial surface. Bleeds are often lobar and can be accompanied by white matter ischemic lesions.
