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[] […] to developing dementia.[] Article First Online: 26 April 2007 Abstract The incidence and prevalence of dementia are increasing. Dementia is a major cause of disability.[]

  • 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[] Mixed dementia consists of a combination between multi-infarct and Alzheimer's dementia.[] Abstract Multi-infarct dementia (MID) indicates a dementia disorder primarily caused by multiple cerebral infarcts.[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    progression to severe disability and the absence of regeneration in a sural nerve biopsy.[] […] 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[] Pittock, Autoimmune dementias, Non‐Alzheimer's and Atypical Dementia, (123-133), (2016). Nese Sinmaz, Tina Nguyen, Fiona Tea, Russell C.[]

  • 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[] These syndromes range from frontotemporal dementia to behavioral or cognitive syndromes.[] KEYWORDS: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Autophagy; Autophagy-related genes; Disease-associated genes; Frontotemporal dementia[]

  • 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[] Serial assessments of a 29-year-old woman showed progressive dementia.[] However, it has been described in adults usually presenting with parkinsonism plus dementia.[]

  • 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[] […] congenital disorder of nervous system Alexander's disease Alexander's disease (disorder) ALEXANDER DISEASE Megalencephaly in infancy accompanied by progressive spasticity and dementia[] After head trauma in a traffic accident at the age of 46, his character changed, and dementia and dysarthria developed, but he remained independent.[]

  • Huntington's Disease

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

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    progression of disability, more frequent relapses, and worse postrelapse recoveries.[] […] 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[] With the increasing awareness of cognition dysfunction in MS, molecules such as apolipoprotein and proteins in the amyloid precursor protein pathway implicated in dementia[]

  • 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[] 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[] […] progressive form associated with severe hepatic dysfunction and psychomotor delay during infancy and later with supranuclear vertical gaze paresis, ataxia, marked spasticity, and dementia[]

  • 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.[] The clinical course tends to be progressive and includes dementia, cortical blindness, cortical deafness, spastic hemiplegia, and pseudobulbar palsy.[] Signs and symptoms include dementia, cortical deafness and blindness, pseudobulbar palsy, and hemiplegia.
