NUMEROUS: Most unusual would be in people in your age group and younger. Virtually, any neurological dysfunction could be associated with small cerebral infarct. In elderly, cognitive loss thought secondary to alzheimer's could be due to multiple lacunar strokes. A presentation of epilepsy in older folks often due to a stoke. Very complex area, best sources for more info, am heart assoc, and stroke ass.
