The causes of ischemic cerebrovascular disorders, including transient ischemic attack (TIA) and cerebral infarction, can be classified according to the site of the source for the arterial blockage within the vascular system, from most proximal to distal: cardiac source, large-vessel disorders, small-vessel occlusive disease, and hematologic disorders. Notably, illicit drug use is a common cause of stroke in young persons; it may cause arrhythmia, inflammatory arteriopathies, and a relative hypercoagulable state.
