Although uncommon in comparison to dementia in the elderly, early-onset dementia presents a huge problem for patients, their carers and physicians. This is the first comprehensive and international book on the subject, encompassing the clinical and neuropsychological features as well as the relevant advances in the neurosciences and patient management. After an introductory chapter on epidemiology, the book deals with assessment and evaluation, covers disorders mimicking dementia and describes the relevant advances in imaging, molecular pathology, neurochemistry and neuropathology. The focus then shifts to the main causes of dementia including Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia, Huntington's disease, prion encephalopathies and inflammatory disorders. The final section of the book deals with treatment issues including drug interventions and opportunities for non- pharmacological management. John Hodges is an acknowledged expert in this field and has assembled a team of leading academics and clinicians from around the world as contributors.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Specialists in neurology, almost all from Britain or the US, explore the clinical and neuropsychological features of pre-senile dementia and review developments in the relevant neurosciences and patent management. In 20 studies, they discuss epidemiology, the current understanding of the basic medical and biological sciences, current clinical practice, the primary players in the causation of dementia, drug interventions both for specific diseases and for modifying general behavior, and practical non-pharmacological management.
