119 Possible Causes for Dementia, Rapid Progression to Disability

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Our findings may reflect the presence of greater comorbidity leading to earlier death among men than among women with AD, 57 or a more rapid progression of AD in women. 58[dx.doi.org] […] to developing dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Article First Online: 26 April 2007 Abstract The incidence and prevalence of dementia are increasing. Dementia is a major cause of disability.[oadoi.org]

  • Multi-Infarct Dementia

    Most patients with worsening disability in this cohort had experienced a new stroke, indicating that recurrent stroke is a major determinant of disability progression in CADASIL[functionalneurology.com] Mixed dementia consists of a combination between multi-infarct and Alzheimer's dementia.[symptoma.com] Abstract Multi-infarct dementia (MID) indicates a dementia disorder primarily caused by multiple cerebral infarcts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    progression to severe disability and the absence of regeneration in a sural nerve biopsy.[doi.org] […] may include difficulty in walking or swallowing, loss of muscle tone, loss of fine motor coordination, slurred speech, memory loss, vision problems, sleep disturbances, dementia[ninds.nih.gov] Pittock, Autoimmune dementias, Non‐Alzheimer's and Atypical Dementia, (123-133), (2016). Nese Sinmaz, Tina Nguyen, Fiona Tea, Russell C.[doi.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    One woman with ALS received intracranial injection of adult olfactory ensheathing glia (OEG) transplantation and her disease progressed at a more rapid rate after the procedure[doi.org] These syndromes range from frontotemporal dementia to behavioral or cognitive syndromes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Autophagy; Autophagy-related genes; Disease-associated genes; Frontotemporal dementia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    Rapid progression of the disease may lead to severe disability, life-threatening state, the status dystonicus, and several critical events such as hyperpyrexia, dehydration[file.scirp.org] Serial assessments of a 29-year-old woman showed progressive dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, it has been described in adults usually presenting with parkinsonism plus dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alexander Disease

    Springer et al [2000] suggested that the neonatal form is characterized by the following: Onset within the first month of life Rapid progression leading to severe disability[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] congenital disorder of nervous system Alexander's disease Alexander's disease (disorder) ALEXANDER DISEASE Megalencephaly in infancy accompanied by progressive spasticity and dementia[wikidata.org] After head trauma in a traffic accident at the age of 46, his character changed, and dementia and dysarthria developed, but he remained independent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Huntington's Disease

    First, the disease progresses more rapidly in homozygotes than in heterozygotes.[doi.org] Dementias: Advances in Neurology. 38 Vol. New York, NY: Raven; 1983. Meiser B, Dunn S.[web.archive.org] Dementias: Advances in Neurology. New York, NY: Raven; 1983. 38 Vol: Meiser B, Dunn S.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    progression of disability, more frequent relapses, and worse postrelapse recoveries.[dx.doi.org] […] instrumental activities of daily living (TIADLs) have been useful to bridge between cognitive testing and real-world functioning in disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and other dementias[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With the increasing awareness of cognition dysfunction in MS, molecules such as apolipoprotein and proteins in the amyloid precursor protein pathway implicated in dementia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Niemann-Pick Disease Type C

    In conclusion, our findings showed a progression in all four parameters of the disability scale, representing a continuous, unbroken progression of neurological manifestations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 39-year-old female presented to the Bryan Memory Disorders Clinic at Duke University with a 7-year history of an atypical progressive dementia, mildly impaired vertical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] progressive form associated with severe hepatic dysfunction and psychomotor delay during infancy and later with supranuclear vertical gaze paresis, ataxia, marked spasticity, and dementia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diffuse Cerebral Sclerosis of Schilder

    While variable, the rate of progression may be rapid, with total disability in six months to two years followed by death at varying ages.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical course tends to be progressive and includes dementia, cortical blindness, cortical deafness, spastic hemiplegia, and pseudobulbar palsy.[icd9data.com] Signs and symptoms include dementia, cortical deafness and blindness, pseudobulbar palsy, and hemiplegia.
