is a non-arteriosclerotic, non-amyloid angiopathy characterized by recurrent subcortical ischemic strokes with onset in mid-adulthood and stepwise progression over two decades frequently leading to pseudobulbar palsy and dementia. The disease locus has recently been mapped to chromosome 19q12. Using genetic linkage analysis on a previously unpublished pedigree with CADASIL we have identified a chromosomal crossover in a clinically affected family member which refines mapping of the CADASIL disease locus. Multilocus linkage analysis established the best estimate for the gene locus within an 8 centimorgan interval bracketed by the microsatellite markers D19S226 and D19S222. This allows us to re-address the question of whether CADASIL and familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM), a second mendelian disorder which has recently been mapped to chromosome 19q12, represent allelic disorders.

Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL)
