Has anyone heard of "white vessel disease of the brain"? I have a friend who says her husband was dx with this but I've never heard of it & am thinking they were told something more along the lines of white matter disease. Her 60 something hubby has been having TIA the past few days apparently, although according to her an MRI has never been done (thought that was standard?) I don't have lots of details though.
Just curious if that term, white vessel disease, is used at times & what exactly it refers to. My understanding is that really isn't specific, since white matter problems are a part of neuro issues such as MS, parkinson's, alzheimers, etc.
Thanks for any comments!
