Informations about the disease

Clinical Comment

CADASIL (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy) repeatedly causes ischaemic attacks, cognitive loss up to and including dementia, migraine with aura and mood swings, apathy and white matter lesions. The onset, symptoms and progression of the disease vary between and within families. Most of the pathogenic genetic changes are found in the NOTCH3 gene, depending on their localisation, penetrance and symptomatology vary. The diagnostic yield is very variable and also depends on the quality of clinical diagnosis.
