Abstract

ANDRADE, Gustavo Cardoso de et al. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy presenting as a brain tumor: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2006, vol.64, n.1, pp. 153-156. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X2006000100034.

We describe the unusual case of a 45-year-old male patient harboring an intracranial mass due to cerebral amyloid angiopathy whose clinical and radiological features were those of a low grade glioma. Biopsy revealed cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The clinical, radiological and pathological findings are discussed as we review the available literature.

Keywords : brain tumor; cerebral amyloid angiopathy; neuroimaging; pathology.
