Cerebral small vessel disease is associated with higher ratios of soluble‐epoxide hydrolase derived linoleic acid diols to their parent epoxides; however, the relationship had not yet been examined in stroke. This study helped determine that linoleic acid markers of cytochrome P450/soluble‐epoxide hydrolase activity were associated with small versus large vessel stroke. The findings may indicate a novel modifiable risk factor for small vessel disease and related neurodegeneration.
