CONCLUSION: Our report is the single-center experience of our hospital in eastern Taiwan, where access to medical care and genetic test is relatively limited compared to other parts of Taiwan. We had also compared the utility of Davous' CADASIL criteria and the CADASIL scale, and both can be used as sensitive screening tools before genetic tests, especially in the area with limited medical access.PMID:34841502
