Synonyms: ABeta amyloidosis, Flemish type | ABetaA21G-related amyloidosis | HCHWA, Flemish type | Hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis, Flemish type

A form of hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis characterized by an age of onset of 45 years of age progressive Alzheimer’s disease-like dementia and lobar intracerebral hemorrhage in some patients. This subtype is due to a mutation in the APP gene (21q21.2) encoding the beta-amyloid precursor protein. This mutation causes an increased accumulation of amyloid-beta protein in the walls of the arteries and capillaries of the meninges cerebellar cortex and cerebral cortex leading to the weakening and eventual rupture of these vessels.
