Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Genetic stroke syndromes represent a small portion of stroke patients usually affecting younger patients. Recognition of systemic manifestations of genetic disorders with stroke as a phenotype, and low clinical suspicion especially in young patients with stroke, would provide important clues in establishing an accurate diagnosis. Along with clinical presentation, neuroimaging characteristics suggestive of genetic stroke syndromes provide a useful tool in establishing the diagnosis. Here we discuss neuroimaging findings of these genetic disorders.
