Cerebral amyloid angiopathy presenting as a nonhemorrhagic, infiltrating mass

Neuroradiology. 1996 Jul;38(5):449-52. doi: 10.1007/BF00607272.


We present a case of biopsy-proven cerebral amyloid angiopathy mimicking a unilateral, non-hemorrhagic, infiltrating, intra-axial mass on MRI. The patient was treated with steroids, with clinical improvement and significant resolution of the MRI abnormalities.
