PMID: 33181727.


Individuals with the inherited progressive microangiopathy Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts (CADASIL) most classically develop migraine with aura and recurrent subcortical ischemic infarcts with progressive cognitive decline, gait dysfunction, psychiatric disturbances culminating in early death. However, clinically important venous pathologies may not be anticipated by treating neurologists such as branch retinal vein occlusions (BRVOs). Herein we describe a case of CADASIL with a BRVO and a brief review of venous pathology in CADASIL.
