Abstract

Due to heterogeneity of dementia, a condition affecting a significant portion of the elderly population, a multi-specialist diagnostic approach is often required. Elements of the diagnostic procedure most frequently employed by the neurologist are outlined by the author, who refers also to standards developed in this respect in other countries.
