Here we report a female patient with elderly-onset cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL). At age 71, she developed gait disturbance, followed by memory disturbance 1 year later. She had been treated for hypertension and diabetes mellitus for 19 years. There apparently was low penetrance of disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings showed typical features of CADASIL, and the R607C mutation was detected in exon 11 in NOTCH3. This case strongly indicates that CADASIL should be considered when typical findings are observed on MRI even in cases of elderly onset with multiple cerebrovascular risk factors.
