Multiple Cerebral Hemorrhagic Lesions Depicted by Susceptibility-Weighted Imaging in a Patient with Down Syndrome: Case Report


Our objective is to study a 53-year-old woman with Down syndrome presented with massive lobar hematoma in the left fronto-parietal lobe, and who underwent craniotomy and hematoma evacuation. Histopathological diagnosis of surgical specimen was amyloid angiopathy. Postoperative magnetic resonance studies were performed. The lesion this time showed mixed intensity on susceptibility-weighted imaging. In addition, multiple hypointense lesions were evident. An old previously unidentified hemorrhage in the right temporo-parietal lobe was accompanied by superficial cortical siderosis.
