What Is Cortical Calcifying Angiomatosis?

Cortical calcifying angiomatosis is a cortical vascular (brain blood vessel) abnormality that is characterized by calcification of blood vessels and is usually present in the parietal or occipital cortical and subcortical regions of the brain.1 [6]

The brain has 2 sides or hemispheres. Each side has 4 lobes, making 8 lobes altogether: 2 frontal lobes behind the forehead, 2 temporal lobes at ear level, 2 occipital lobes make up the rear of the brain, and 2 parietal lobes located behind the frontal lobes and above the temporal lobes.

Q: How do calcifications of blood vessels appear?

A: Calcium [7] deposits are jagged owing to natural crystal formation by calcium [7], which is a mineral.
