Hi, I would like to get more information on Cadasil, as my sister, 35 years is likely to suffer from it. She has unbearable migraines. What kind of disorder is it?

CADASIL stands for cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy. This disease is seen in young adults, as migraines with or without an aura, mood disturbances, focal neurologic deficits, and dementia. Even strokes are present. By age of 60 years most patients will express many of these symptoms. It is characteristic for these patients to have recurrent subcortical ischemic events causing permanent deficits. Migraines arise from damage of blood vessels, caused by abnormal muscle cells surrounding the blood vessel.
