Synonyms: ABeta amyloidosis, Piedmont type | ABetaL34V-related amyloidosis | HCHWA, Piedmont type | Hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis, Piedmont type
A form of hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis characterized by an age of onset between 50-70 years of age recurrent lobar intracerebral hemorrhages and cognitive decline. 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.
