Inflammation as part of cerebral amyloid angiopathy disguised as a tumour
A male with probable cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)-related inflammation presented with headache and subacute hemi­paresis. After admission he developed a disturbance of con­­scious­ness and a CT brain scan showed oedema with significant midline shift. He was treated with corticosteroids with prompt clinical improvement.
