Cerebral microbleeds in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus.
 

Author(s): Elias Johansson, Khalid Ambarki, Richard Birgander, Nazila Bahrami, Anders Eklund, Jan Malm

Journal:

 

A vascular disease could be involved in pathophysiology of normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH). If so, there should be an association between INPH and cerebral microbleeds (CMB). This study aims to analyze if CMB are associated with INPH.
