CADASIL (cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy) is an autosomal dominant angiopathy characterized by recurrent cerebrovascular events, migraine and dementia. We describe a case of sensorineural hearing loss as the presenting feature of this condition. We have found no previous reports in the world literature of CADASIL presenting with a sudden sensorineural hearing loss. The significance of questioning a patient with regard to family history is exemplified in this case.
