Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is an important cause of stroke and vascular cognitive impairment (VCI), leading to subcortical ischemic vascular dementia. As a hereditary form of SVD with early onset, cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) represents a pure form of SVD and may thus serve as a model disease for SVD. To date, underlying molecular mechanisms linking vascular pathology and subsequent neuronal damage in SVD are incompletely understood.
