AAN 2022 | An insight into the etiology of intracerebral hemorrhages

Edip Gurol, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, gives a detailed overview of the etiology of cerebral small vessel disease (cSVD), drawing focus on cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) and hypertensive cSVD (HTN-cSVD). MRI markers have an important role in distinguishing between the two major forms of cSVD. Dr Gurol explains the major differences between CAA and HTN-cSVD, including the type of microbleeds common in each disease, the location of these microbleeds, and how MRI can be used in disease prognosis. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology 2022 Congress in Seattle, WA.
