Abstract

We hypothesize the existence of an age-associated neovasculopathy with recurrent bleeding. It could be the result of age-related defects in the regulation of the angiogenetic process creating pathologic small vessels with a bleeding tendency. Conditions like subdural hematoma, ocular angiopathies, intestinal angiodysplasia, coronary atherosclerotic plaques and others, may be the clinical expression of such a neovasculopathy.
