Congophilic angiopathy of the brain: a clinical and pathological report on two siblings

Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry
R A GriffithsJ M Spalding


Clinical and histological accounts are given of a sister and brother, dying aged 61 and 56 years respectively after illnesses lasting 5-6 years marked by a progressive mental and physical disability. The family history suggested transmission by a dominant gene. The histological findings were of a very severe congophilic angiopathy confined to the brain, spinal cord and leptomeninges and giving rise to multiple haemorrhages and softenings. There were, in addition, abundant amyloid-containing "plaques" of various forms, found principally in the hippocampus and cerebellar cortex. The cases are compared with similar cases in the literature, and reasons given for regarding this condition as a separate entity rather than a variant of Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's Disease: Amyloid Beta

Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease associated with the accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain; these plaques are comprised of amyloid beta deposits. Here is the latest research in this field.

Alzheimer's Disease: APP

Amyloid precursor protein (APP) proteolysis is critical for the development of Alzheimer's disease, a neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain. Here is the latest research on APP and Alzheimer's disease.
