White-matter lesions (WML) detected on MRI may reflect different pathologies, but, in older persons, are thought to be mainly of ischemic origin. WML increase in prevalence with age. Several cardiovascular risk factors and cognitive, emotional, and physical function consequences of WML have been identified. These are reviewed briefly in this report.
