COL4A1 Mutation Revealed by an Isolated Brain Hemorrhage


Ten to fifteen percent of strokes are related to an intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Etiologies are mainly arterial hypertension, amyloid deposition, and vascular malformations. In cases of a young age without vascular risk factors and vascular malformations, a genetic cause has to be suspected, especially a mutation in the gene coding for type IV collagen alpha 1 (COL4A1) [1].
We report a COL4A1 gene mutation in a 45-year-old woman with an isolated ICH in the absence of any other MRI abnormality, which further extends the clinical spectrum of COL4A1 mutations.
