I need to know is Vascular Leucopathy stage 3 Fazekas scale start of vascular dementia ? Or?

Does he have problems with his memory at the moment or what other symptoms he has?

The Fazekas scale is used to simply quantify the amount of white matter T2 hyperintense lesions usually attributed to chronic small vessel ischaemia,

Leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter is a progressive disorder that mainly affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). This disorder causes deterioration of the central nervous system's white matter, which consists of nerve fibers covered by myelin.

It is a rare and often fatal viral disease characterized by progressive damage or inflammation of the white matter of the brain that can cause difficulty in memory and  vascular dementia
