Abstract: This report discusses a case of nonconvulsive status epilepticus, caused by cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation. Brain biopsy demonstrated cerebral amyloid angiopathy, with clinical and radiographic features indicative of a fluctuating inflammatory process. Immunomodulatory treatment with pulse steroids resulted in rapid and dramatic clinical and radiographic improvement. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation should be considered in the differential diagnosis of new-onset seizures after the age of 40, when associated with fluctuating multifocal T2 hyperintensities and petechial hemorrhages on gradient echo (GRE) or susceptibility-weighted (SWI) MRI sequences.
