One of the most beneficial diagnostic tests in patients suspected of having postpartum cerebral angiopathy is the cerebral angiogram.
However, fatalities resulting from postpartum cerebral angiopathy have been reported.
However, it is not known precisely which of the risk factors among hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia is more important for endothelial damage resulting in angiopathy.
In addition to hyperglycemia, factors such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, hyperuricemia, and genetics accelerate the development of angiopathy.
In amyloid angiopathy
there is deposition of amyloid- [beta] in the capillary wall, which also results in microaneurysm formation, concentric splitting, chronic inflammatory infiltrates and fibrinoid necrosis.
Chronic calcific pancreatitis (CCP), endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF), multinodular goitre (MNG) and mucoid angiopathy
along with the root wilt disease of coconut is endemic to Kerala with its radioactive actinide beach sands.
Amyloid or congophilic angiopathy
is also commonly seen in AD.
The neuropathology of the two most common diseases associated with cerebral microhemorrhages on MR imaging, cerebral amyloid angiopathy
, and chronic systemic hypertension, are typified by a progressive small-vessel vasculopathy.

Instead, it resembles a form of human Alzheimer's disease, cerebral amyloid angiopathy
, that damages brain arteries.
When microbleeds occur in certain brain areas, they may indicate a type of small vessel disease known as cerebral amyloid angiopathy
, in which the accumulation of amyloid (a protein often related to Alzheimer's disease) causes degeneration of smooth muscle cells and increases the susceptibility of blood vessels to ruptures and hemorrhages.
The most frequent presentation of intracranial amyloid is as cerebral amyloid angiopathy
, or as deposits within the senile plaques of Alzheimer disease.
