Amyloid Crystallopathies: CADASIL

CADASIL (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy With Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy)

FLAIR MRI of the brain showing hyperintensities in
Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is the most common form of hereditary cerebral angiopathy (see image below). As the name implies, it is dominantly inherited.

Review: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy, prion angiopathy, CADASIL and the spectrum of protein elimination failure angiopathies (PEFA) in neurodegenerative disease with a focus on therapy

Failure of elimination of proteins from the brain is a major feature in many neurodegenerative diseases. Insoluble proteins accumulate in brain parenchyma and in walls of cerebral capillaries and arteries....

Serum amyloid P component: A novel potential player in vessel degeneration in CADASIL

In cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL), granular osmiophilic material (GOM) may play some roles in inducing cerebrovascular events. To elucidate the pathogenesis of CADASIL, we used laser microdissection and liquid chromatography–tande...
