The article presents a clinical case of a 62-year-old patient diagnosed with inflammatory amyloid angiopathy after extensive diagnostic imaging and based on the characteristic radiological picture. Inflammatory amyloid angiopathy is a rare condition with intermediate features between the classic form of amyloid angiopathy and primary central nervous system angiitis. Multiple characteristic features suggesting the diagnosis may be seen on brain magnetic resonance imaging. There are no laboratory markers of the disease. Knowledge of this disease is important as it allows for a quick diagnosis and initiation of appropriate treatment. The response to treatment varies, with full symptom resolution in some patients, and resistance to treatment in others, such as the patient described in this case report.
