Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is a genetically determined disorder that leads to early transient ischemic attacks and strokes. A history of migraine headaches with aura and psychiatric disturbance often precedes the onset of strokes by multiple years. CADASIL is marked by cognitive decline that progresses to dementia.
