Young Onset Dementia: How Much Diagnostic Testing is Enough?

Anahita Adeli, Keith Anthony Josephs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Dementia in individuals less than 65 years, traditionally referred to as young-onset dementia, encompasses a considerably wider differential than in older individuals with dementia and includes familial and sporadic disorders. Given the devastating impact young-onset dementia has on an individual and family, a thorough investigation is warranted. Determining the precise etiology can be quite the diagnostic feat, however, it can be accomplished using a methodical approach.
