Hello @michaeleta I am not any kind of medical practitioner, but in all the reading I have done the cause of cerebral amyloid angiopathy is not known at this time. I can say I have never read any journal articles saying the cause is blunt force of any kind. Rather it seems the culprit may be the depositing of abnormal amyloid protein.

@IndianaScott, I have a form of cerebral angiopathy sometimes called "disappearing White Matter". It is diagnosed as a portion of my Gelsolin, or AKA Finnish Amyloidosis. It is a rare one, something around 1 of every 2,000,000 physician visits results in the dX. Every person I can find who is diagnosed with FKTN (Fukutin Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy- LGGMD-4) who has been tested for Amyloid also also has Gelsolin. Including me, and about 100 others around the world. So the CA might occasionally be a bit mis-diagnosed as only from Gelsolin (GSN – OMIM: 105120 or 137350)
