Isolated Central Sulcus Hemorrhage in a Case of Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy
June 04, 2018 | Bhawna Sharma, Divya Goel A Multispecialty

Central sulcus hemorrhage in an elderly patient may occur without an obvious etiology like hypertension or trauma. This may be attributed to cerebral amyloid angiopathy. We report a case of a patient who presented clinically with recurrent transient ischemic attacks, had isolated central sulcus hemorrhage on computed tomography head and was finally found to have numerous unforeseen hemorrhages on gradient recalled echo (GRE) sequence, both cortical and subcortical. This lead to a diagnosis of cerebral amyloid angiopathy in this patient.
