Q:
In my family, people with CADASIL have a very particular way of walking, at an advanced stage
of the disease: small steps, dragging their feet, leaning forward or sideways is this characteristic of the disease?

A:

Professor Chabriat: Indeed, gait and balance disorders are important symptoms of the disease, more common that hemiplegia (total paralysis of one arms, leg) for these disorders, kinesiotheraphy and physical activity are especially recommended, as much as possible.
