What is RVCL?
RVCL is an ultra-rare disease that is characterized by the deterioration of small blood vessels. The condition is often misdiagnosed because symptoms vary from patient to patient and resemble other diseases. RVCL causes vascular dementia due to a single-gene mutation, and vascular dementia is included among Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias.
