Table 3 Distribution of CAA and the proportion of meningeal and meningocortical CAA in the different brain regions

From: No neuropathological evidence for a direct topographical relation between microbleeds and cerebral amyloid angiopathy

Region (total number of CAA) CAA (%) of the total population mx_CAA (%) mx_cx_CAA (%)
Frontal (35) 30.9 18 (51.4) 17 (48.6)
Parietal (32) 28.3 13 (40.6) 19 (59.4)
Occipital (44) 38.9 12 (27.3) 32 (72.3)
  1. Mx_CAA CAA present only in meningeal vessels, mx_cx_CAA CAA present in both meningeal and cortical vessels
