We studied longitudinal changes of the levels of anti-amyloid β (anti-Aβ) antibody, amyloid β (Aβ) protein, and interleukin 8 (IL-8) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of a patient with cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation (CAA-ri) in whom steroid treatment resulted in clinical improvement. The diagnosis of CAA-ri was established with brain biopsy. Levels of anti-Aβ 42 antibody, Aβ 40, Aβ 42 and IL-8 in CSF were measured in the CAA-ri patient at 23 time points in the 8-month clinical… CONTINUE READING
