Dementia in Clinical Practice cover

In industrialized countries, and in relation to the prolonged survival of elderly people, Dementia is going to be one of the 21st century’s major diseases.

Dementia has become a widely known condition in the general population, although this knowledge is often associated with beliefs and fears which are not always justified. Dementia in Clinical Practice is a welcome new book that is targeted at professionals, but which emphasizes concepts that will also be of interest to a much wider audience.

Drawing on the latest developments in research and management, this exciting text focuses on the manifestations, diagnosis and therapies for the main forms of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease, vascular, Lewy body and frontotemporal dementia are all covered.

Alongside the multitude of thick textbooks in this field, Dementia in Clinical Practice is a rare little gem. It summarizes the most recent advances in the field and provides an updated view of the disorders likely to be encountered in daily practice.

For each clinical entity, the authors review the major issues of disease pathophysiology, overlap of conditions, diagnosis, therapeutic possibilities and recommendations for patient management.

Each section focuses on a major form of dementia and discusses the pathophysiology of the disease, its diagnostic challenges, its characteristic neuroimaging features and possible therapeutic interventions.
