Intra cerebral haemorrhage secondary to cerebral amyloid angiopathy is often distinguished from haemorrhage due to hypertension by several imaging characteristics.
These results support the notion that EPVS in the BG may be a marker of CSVD.[22],[28] The results of a prospective cohort study showed that WM-EPVS was associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) and superficial siderosis.[29] Conversely, a prospective, multicenter, hospital-based study published by Zhang et al .[30] showed that hypertension was an independent risk factor for EPVS in WM but not in BG or hippocampus.
This cerebral hypoperfusion condition in patients with AD could be the result of small vessel damage driven by amyloid angiopathy, a landmark of AD brain findings among other alterations [20].
Further, arguing against an atypical presentation of AD, the extensive and severe amyloid pathologies typical of advanced AD neuropathology were not seen (Thal phase was 3, neuritic plaque pathology was sparse, and no cerebral amyloid angiopathy was present).

The same authors have also shown that in transgenic AD model mice the antiplatelet agent clopidogrel (an ADP receptor [P2Y1, 2] blocker) reduced the amount of clusterin in the circulation and the incidence of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) [45].
Q My husband recently had a hemorrhagic stroke, which the doctors told us was caused by a condition called cerebral amyloid angiopathy. What is cerebral amyloid angiopathy and how does it cause stroke?
Microscopic analysis of the biopsied specimen showed evidence of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA).
Approximately 80-85% are primary spontaneous ICH caused by arterial hypertension or cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Untreated hypertension is a greater risk factor than treated hypertension and hypertensive patients who discontinue their indications have greater risk than those who continue them (Woo at al, 2004).
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy and mechanisms of brain amyloid accumulation
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy and mechanisms of brain amyloid accumulation will be investigated by researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston.

It was only after her death that it was found she was suffering from the rare neurological disorder cerebral amyloid angiopathy, which is usually associated with much older people with Alzheimer's disease.
