Published inJournal of Alzheimer's Disease, vol. 73, no. 4, p. 1467-1479
Publication date2020

Background: Cortical superficial siderosis (cSS) is a hemorrhagic marker of blood-brain barrier disruption detected in brain MRI. Together with cerebral microbleeds (CMB), they are recognized as a small vessel disease marker associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Objective: This study aims to determine the prevalence and the characteristics of cSS in a memory clinic population.
