Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is among the most common causes of degenerative dementia. This book, which represents the first authoritative statement about DLB, includes review articles, case studies, and recent research findings from the leading researchers of DLB. The aims of this volume are to establish clinical diagnostic criteria and pathological protocols for DLB, and to explore evidence indicating that DLB patients may be responsive to symptomatic therapy. Covering the classification, cognitive manifestations, clinical diagnosis, epidemiology, genetics, neuropathology, neurochemistry, and treatment of DLB, this is a landmark publication in clinical neuroscience.
