CADASIL (cerebral arteriopathy, autosomal dominant, with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy) is an infrequent inherited small artery disease that could have anesthetic implications. However these have rarely been reported. We present an anesthetic experience of a female patient previously diagnosed with CADASIL, who had suffered an ischemic vascular cerebral accident with a MRI compatible with leukoencephalopathy, and who was dependent for daily activities, mood alterations, apathy, and urine incontinence. We discuss anesthetic management of CADASIL patient, considering protection from further cerebral ischemia.
