    Cortical superficial siderosis describes a distinct pattern of blood-breakdown product deposition limited to cortical sulci over the convexities of the cerebral hemispheres, sparing the brainstem, cerebellum and spinal cord. Although cortical superficial siderosis has many possible causes, it is...

    Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a commonly occurring condition that is not familiar to most clinicians. A common presenting feature may be transient focal neurological symptoms leading to the potential for clinical misdiagnosis as transient ischaemic attack. This may result in the inappropriate...

    Cortical superficial siderosis (cSS) is an increasingly recognized MR-imaging marker most probably caused by focal convexity subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). There is accumulating evidence that cSS represents an important risk factor for subsequent intracranial hemorrhages. Here, we aimed to...
