Brain imaging in a 79 year old man with biopsy confirmed amyloid-β-related angiitis. Extensive confluent T2 FLAIR hyperintense vasogenic edema (a) and multiple punctate cortical foci of susceptibility (b) are seen in the right frontal and parietal lobes. Axial postcontrast 3D BBMRI (c) demonstrates 3 small cortical arteries with patent central hypointense lumen (arrows), and extensive circumferential wall enhancement, which appears to extend into the adjacent perivascular brain parenchyma compatible with vasculitis
