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 therelevant 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 includingdrug 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.
