Answer

Exact mortality rate in patients with CADASIL is unknown.

Age at onset for stroke is 45-50 years.

Mean age at death has been reported to be 61 years after a mean disease duration of approximately 23 years. [6]

Close to 80% of patients are completely dependent immediately before death. [7]
