ABSTRACT
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy(CAA) is characterized by the deposition of amyloid beta-protein in the walls of small to medium-sized arteries of the leptomeninges and cerebral cortex. While often asymptomatic, CAA can develop into intracerebral hemorrhage facilitated by arterial hypertension. We report the case of a 52-year-old man with CAA and arterial hypertension who developed recurrent cerebral hemorrhages on three different occasions and in multiple non-overlapping loci over a period of nine years. Based on our findings, we recommend brain biopsies for all patients undergoing evacuation of multiple recurrence or atypical pattern intracerebral hemorrhages.
Key Words: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy; Recurrent cerebral hemorrhages
