Abstract

The authors present clinical and neuropathological description of patient treated in the Department of Neurology, Wrocław Medical University, in the years 1995–2001. The patient suffered from recurrent episodes of ischemic strokes and subsequent extensive, lethal hemorrhage affecting both hemispheres and brainstem. The risk factors of cerebrovascular disease in this case were: arterial hypertension, arteriosclerosis and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).
Pathologic examination of the cerebral hemispheres and brainstem revealed no features of cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The authors discuss probable relationship between PNH and recurrent episodes of ischemic strokes with subsequent cerebral hemorrhage.
