Microvascular White Matter Disease?

Answer

White matter is one of the two components of the central nervous system. Microvascular ischemic white matter disease is a general term used to describe all conditions where there are issues with the blood vessels supplying blood to certain areas of the brain. When this occurs, white spots in the brain parenchyma or white matter manifest. Problems with the blood vessels can arise from underlying disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, or high blood cholesterol. Also, this is seen in those with autoimmune diseases such as lupus.
