Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is characterized by the deposition of the amyloid β-protein (Aβ) within cerebral vessels. The involvement of different brain areas in CAA follows a hierarchical sequence similar to that of Alzheimer-related senile plaques. Alzheimer’s disease patients frequently exhibit CAA. The expansion of CAA in AD often shows the pattern of full-blown CAA. The deposition of Aβ within capillaries distinguishes two types of CAA. One with capillary Aβ-deposition is… CONTINUE READING
