1998a). , 1998a). It has been speculated that these lesions may constitute first signs of subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy (Pantoni and Garcia, 1995). , 46 F. Fazekas et al. , 1998b). , 1999). , 1992). , 1999). Other coexisting morphologic abnormalities such as lacunes or infarcts, brain atrophy and associated degenerative disorders may be one explanation. , 1998c). Clearly, it appears to be important whether white matter signal abnormalities are a consequence of myelin rarefaction or indicate concomitant neuronal loss which supposedly would imply a higher probability of cerebral dysfunction.
