Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy (CAA) is characterized by deposit of β-amyloid protein in the cortical and leptomeningeal arteries. It tends to increase in prevalence with advancing age and seems to have slight predilection for temporal, parietal and occipital lobes. It has recently been identified an inflammatory form of this angiophaty. This report describes a case presenting as an inflammatory vasculitis-perivasculitis form successfully treated with steroids and discuss about typical features and findings of this condition.
