Single subcortical infarction (SSI) in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory can be classified into proximal SSI (pSSI) and distal SSI (dSSI) based on the heterogeneous pathogenesis. It is hypothesized that pSSI is more relevant with atherosclerosis, as low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is the major atherogenic lipoprotein, we conducted the present study to investigate the association between LDL-C levels and pSSI in comparison with dSSI.
