Disease Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy

Name Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy
Synonyms Amyloid Angiopathy, Cerebral | Angiopathy, Cerebral Amyloid | Angiopathy, Congophilic | Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathies | Congophilic Angiopathies | Congophilic Angiopathy | Sporadic Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy
Definition A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)
