Thank you for contacting HCM.
MRI and clinical findings are suggestive of brain strokes due to decreased blood supply to the brain.
He needs treatment with antiplatelet agents such as aspirin. In addition, risk factors for brain stroke should be identified and treated. These include diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, etc. Please consult a neurologist. With good treatment, your father can have a long life.
