Here is the last JAD manuscript where we described the evolution of the clinical and neuroradiological features of Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy-related inflammation (CAA-ri) recurrence in the large longitudinal cohort of CAA-ri cases recruited through the iCAβ International Network.
As we demonstrated, it is important to do not underestimate any new neurological symptoms in patients who have already experienced a previous episode of CAA-ri. Although the frequency of CAA-ri recurrences is rare, in the case of suspected relapse, a prompt clinical and radiological follow-up should be warmly recommended in order to obtain a timely diagnosis and treatment, having a potential strong impact on the final patients clinical outcome.
