Cerebral microbleeds (MBs) have been often observed due to the development of imaging devices, and are classified to deep and lobar MBs. Lobar MBs are strongly associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Here, we report 3 cases of lobar MBs that developed after small cortical ischemic stroke. One case underwent carotid artery stenting for severe carotid stenosis, one was diagnosed with artery-to-artery embolism, and the other was embolic stroke of undetermined source. New small cortical infarctions were detected with diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
