Dementia With Lewy Bodies (DLB)

Clinical Manifestation

DLB is now recognized as one of the most common dementias in the elderly after AD. It can be recognized on the basis of several clinical characteristics including progressive dementia with marked slowing and fluctuations, persistent visual hallucinations, and an extrapyramidal syndrome. Several other clinical and imaging features are highly suggestive, such as the presence of rapid eye movement sleep disorder, severe sensitivity to neuroleptics, and specific neuroimaging abnormalities.
