UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Cerebral arteriopathy, autosomal recessive, with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy: A cerebrovascular disease characterized by non-hypertensive arteriopathy of cerebral small vessels with subcortical infarcts, alopecia, and spondylosis. Small cerebral arteries show arteriosclerotic changes, fibrous intimal proliferation, and hyaline degeneration with splitting of the intima and/or the internal elastic membrane. Neurologic features include progressive dementia, gait disturbances, extrapyramidal and pyramidal signs, and demyelination of the cerebral white matter with sparing of U fibers.
MalaCards based summary: Carasil Syndrome, also known as cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy, is related to cerebritis and alopecia, and has symptoms including nystagmus, urinary incontinence and dementia. An important gene associated with Carasil Syndrome is HTRA1 (HtrA Serine Peptidase 1). Affiliated tissues include skin.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy, commonly known as CARASIL, is an inherited condition that causes stroke and other impairments.
NIH Rare Diseases:47 Cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy, commonly known as CARASIL, is an inherited condition that causes stroke and other impairments. This progressive condition is characterized by muscle stiffness, mood and personality changes, dementia, memory loss, alopecia of the scalp, and attacks of low back pain. CARASIL is caused by mutations in the HTRA1 gene. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Last updated: 12/21/2011
