Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is usually an age-related degenerative condition caused by deposition of beta-amyloid in the walls of cerebral small vessels. It is associated with micro-haemorrhages, lobar haemorrhages, focal superficial siderosis and changes in cerebral white matter. In addition to a range of persistent and fixed deficits, it can also be associated with transient symptoms commonly referred to as “amyloid spells”. As a result, urgent review in Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) clinics is common. However, the approach required for the diagnosis and management of these patients can differ substantially from the more traditional assessment offered to patients with common causes of suspected cerebral ischaemia.
