Name
Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leucoencephalopathy (CADASIL)
Description
CADASIL is a chronic cerebrovascular disorder characterized by recurrent ischemic attacks and frequent migraines associated with diffuse white-matter abnormalities. CADASIL is caused by mutations in the NOTCH3 gene.
