Cerebral amyloid angiopathy occurs when amyloid proteins build up on the walls of the brain arteries.
EXAMPLE 4, SAMPLE AUTOPSY SIGNOUT: * Frontotemporal lobar degeneration with TDP-43 pathology (FTLD-TDP), Type A, with: *** Severe temporal lobe atrophy, bilateral *** Frontal lobe atrophy, mild *** Hippocampal sclerosis, bilateral, severe *** Neuronal intranuclear ("lentiform") inclusions * Alzheimer disease neuropathology changes, "high", (A2,B3,C1): *** Thal phase for amyloid plaques: 3 (A2) *** Braak and Braak neurofibrillary stage: V (B3) *** CERAD neuritic plaque score: Predominantly sparse (CI) *** No cerebral amyloid angiopathy is identified * No Lewy body disease pathology is identified Comment: FTLD-TDP, Type A, is identified with associated severe TDP-43 proteinopathy, circumscribed atrophy of bilateral anteromedial temporal lobes and bilateral hippocampal sclerosis.
