An 85-year-old woman diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis died of pneumonia and was autopsied.

Histopathological examination indicated a cortical microinfarct (CMI) juxtaposed to cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Recently, in vivo detection of CMIs using 3D-DIR and 3D-FLAIR on 3-tesla MRI has been reported, and postmortem MRI study confirmed the presence of CMIs.
