  • Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is an early-onset inherited small vessel disease. Decreased cerebral blood flow (CBF) may contribute to white matter hyperintensity (WMH) severity in CADASIL, but more evidence is needed to support this hypothesis. This study comprised six patients with CADASIL who harbored mutations in the coding sequence of NOTCH3 and twelve age-matched neurologically healthy controls. We collected clinical and imaging data from patients with CADASIL and divided the brain into four regions: WMH, normal-appearing white matter (NAWM), gray matter (GM), and global brain. We analyzed the relationship between CBF of each region and the WMH volume. Compared with the control group, CBF was significantly decreased in all four regions in the CADASIL group. Lower CBF in these regions was correlated with higher WMH volume in CADASIL. CBF in the NAWM, GM and global regions was positively correlated with that in WMH region. However, after correction tests, only CBF in the WMH region but not in NAWM, GM and global regions was associated with WMH volume. Our findings suggest that CBF in the WMH region is an influencing factor of the WMH severity in CADASIL.
