There are no universally accepted criteria with which to grade the extent of amyloid-related vasculopathy. CAA may be absent in one brain region, while severe in another. 30 Usually the transition between affected and preserved vascular segments is abrupt. With increasing amyloid accumulation, the lengths of vascular segments that appear free of amyloid become shorter and their number decreases. The regional variation in CAA should be considered in sampling tissue for microscopic evaluation, or for planning a brain biopsy, although such an investigation is almost never performed strictly to evaluate severity of amyloid angiopathy.
