    fact sheet index
    Causes Of Multi-Infarct Dementia
    Multi-infarct dementia is caused by a series of strokes that damage or destroy brain tissue. A stroke occurs when blood cannot get to the brain. A blood clot or fatty deposits (called plaques) can block the vessels that supply blood to the brain, causing a stroke. Who is Affected?
    Multi-infarct dementia usually affects people between the ages of 60 and 75. Men are slightly more likely than women to have this disease. However, the most important risk factor for multi-infarct dementia is high blood pressure. It is rare for a person without high blood pressure to develop multi-infarct dementia. Symptoms
    Symptoms that begin suddenly may be a sign of multi-infarct dementia. In addition to confusion and problems with recent memory, symptoms of multi-infarct dementia may include:
    • wandering or getting lost in familiar surroundings.

Dementia Due to HIV Infection
Dementia Due to HIV Infection Overview
Decline in mental processes is a common complication of HIV infection (and many other conditions).
  • Although the specific symptoms vary from person to person, they may be part of a single disorder known as AIDS dementia complex, or ADC. Other names for ADC are HIV-associated dementia and HIV/AIDS encephalopathy.
    Other common symptoms are changes in personality and behavior, speech problems, and motor (movement) problems such as clumsiness and poor balance.
    When these symptoms are severe enough to interfere with everyday activity, a diagnosis of dementia may be warranted.
AIDS dementia complex typically occurs as CD4+ count falls to less than 200 cells/microliter. It may be the first sign of AIDS. With the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the frequency of ADC has declined from 30-60% of people infected with HIV to less than 20%. HAART may not only prevent or delay the onset of AIDS dementia complex in people with HIV infection, it can also improve mental function in people who already have ADC.

For other uses, see Dementia (disambiguation)
Dementia (from Latin demens ) is progressive decline in cognitive function due to damage or disease in the brain beyond what might be expected from normal aging. Particularly affected areas may be memory attention language and problem solving , although particularly in the later stages of the condition, affected persons may be disoriented in time (not knowing what day, week, month or year it is), place (not knowing where they are) and person (not knowing who they are). Symptoms of dementia can be classified as either reversible or irreversible depending upon the etiology of the disease, although dementia, by definition, is irreversible and will eventually result in death.Probably less than 5% of all dementias are reversible.Dementia is a non-specific term that encompasses many disease processes just as fever is attributable to many etiologies.

Darryl Wieland, Ph.D.
Most of us have had times when we forgot the name of someone close to us or misplaced our car keys or even our car. So how do we know when we or someone we love is developing dementia? Q. What is dementia? A. Dementia is a condition of declining mental abilities, especially memory. The person will have problems doing things he or she used to be able to do, like keep the check book, drive a car safely, or plan a meal. He or she will often have problems finding the right words and may become confused when given too many things to do at once. The person with dementia may also change in personality, becoming aggressive, paranoid, or depressed. Q. Isn't dementia just old age or senility? A. As we get older, it takes us longer to remember things or to find the right word to say. But this is NOT dementia. Dementia keeps us from doing the things we used to do because of the mental changes. Although dementia is more common in old age, it is not "normal" and should be evaluated. Aging alone does not interfere with our abilities to function. Q. What causes dementia?

      Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Information
    Alzheimer's disease (pronounced Alz'-hi-merz) is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking and behavior. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. Dementia is a loss of intellectual functions (such as thinking, remembering and reasoning) so severe that it interferes with an individual's daily functioning and eventually results in death. Alzheimer's is the fourth leading cause of death in adults, after heart disease, cancer and stroke. Men and women are affected almost equally. The disease was first described by Dr. Alois Alzheimer in 1906. Since then, researchers have developed a deeper understanding of the changes in the brain (plaques and tangles) and behavioral changes that characterize the disease. Identified risk factors are age and family history. Most people diagnosed with Alzheimer's are older than age 65; however, Alzheimer's disease can occur in people in their 40s and 50s. Symptoms Symptoms of AD can include gradual memory loss, decline in the ability to perform routine tasks, disorientation, difficulty in learning, loss of language skills, impairment of judgment and planning and personality changes. The rate of progression varies from person to person. The time from the onset of symptoms until death averages at 8 years, but can range from 3 to 20 years. Eventually persons with AD become totally incapable of caring for themselves.

What is dementia? Dementia is significant loss of intellectual abilities such as memory capacity, severe enough to interfere with social or occupational functioning. What is not dementia? Dementia is not temporary confusion or forgetfulness that might result from a self-limited infection, underlying illness, or side effects of medications. Dementia typically progresses to become worse over time. How is dementia diagnosed? In diagnosing dementia a doctor uses certain criteria. Criteria for the diagnosis of dementia include impairment of attention, orientation, memory, judgment, language, motor and spatial skills, and function. (By definition dementia is not due to major depression or schizophrenia.) How common is dementia? Dementia is reported in as many as 1% of adults 60 years of age. It has been estimated that the frequency of dementia doubles every five years after 60 years of age.

What is dementia? Dementia can be considered as a global IMPairment of Intelligence, Memory and Personality, in clear consciousness. It can occur at any age but becomes more frequent with age, with a prevalence of 5%-10% in the over 65s and 20% in the over 80s (Saunders 1993). It is seen more frequently in women, due to their increased longevity. The clinical picture Causes of dementia Because of the relatively limited way the brain has for reacting to insult there are various different disease processes which present with dementia, such as:
  • Alzheimers disease Lewy Body disease Multi infarct dementia (arteriosclerotic dementia) Alcoholic dementia Binswangers disease Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease Huntingtons chorea AIDS related dementia Parkinsons disease Normal pressure hydrocephalus Genetic or metabolic disease (eg thyroid) Toxic or traumatic injury Malignant disease; primary, metastatic or iatrogenic from the treatment
