Goal: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is the second-most common cause of nontraumatic intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH), surpassed only by uncontrolled hypertension. We characterized the percentage, risk factors, and comorbidities of patients suffering from CAA-related ICH in relation to long-term outcomes. Material and Methods: We performed retrospective analyses and clinical follow-ups of individuals suffering from ICH who were directly admitted to neurosurgery between 2002 and 2016. Findings: Seventy-four of 174 (42%) spontaneous nontraumatic lobar ICH cases leastwise satisfied the modified Boston criteria definition for at least “possible CAA.” Females suffered a higher risk of CAA-caused ICH (42 of 74, 56.8%, P= .035).
