Answer

Patients with CADASIL should be followed routinely by a neurologist or a vascular neurologist to monitor their degree of disability and rate of progression. Management is primarily symptom-based and addressing rehabilitation needs is paramount. Routine psychiatric follow-up is also reasonable if the patient suffers from a complex mental disorder.
