Cerebral proliferative angiopathy (CPA) is a rare cerebral vascular lesion characterized by diffuse vascular abnormalities with intermingled normal brain parenchyma. Cerebral proliferative angiopathy has a complex clinical presentation, and many patients present with ischemic symptoms. We described a case of a 6-year-old boy presenting with transient dizziness with the weakness of left limbs. MRI showed the presence of a diffusely dilated extensive vascular lesion mainly located in the corpus callosum, right frontal and temporal lobes. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) revealed a large hyper vascular lesion with a diffuse arterial supply. 99mTc-ECD SPECT cerebral blood flow perfusion image revealed decreased perfusion in right frontal and parietal lobe. A surgical procedure of encephaloduromyosynangiosis (EDMS) was performed on the patient, and the patient exhibited disappearance of TIAs during the follow-up period.
