It is reported that most of 70 to 50% of demantias is Alzheimer's disease in Western Europe and the United States according to Japan moreover Russia researchers have been reported that there is more multi infarct demantias. In addition, the incidence of the disease and epidemiological studies have not still determine yet in Turkey. A great deal of research has been conducted recently; and the knowledge of the clinical characteristics, neuropathology, genetics, and possible treatments has accumulated. In this review, these improvements will be summarised.
