Summaries for Dementia, Lewy Body

About this section
MedlinePlus:32 Lewy body disease is one of the most common causes of dementia in the elderly. dementia is the loss of mental functions severe enough to affect normal activities and relationships. lewy body disease happens when abnormal structures, called lewy bodies, build up in areas of the brain. the disease may cause a wide range of symptoms, including changes in alertness and attention hallucinations problems with movement and posture muscle stiffness confusion loss of memory lewy body disease can be hard to diagnose, because parkinson's disease and alzheimer's disease cause similar symptoms. scientists think that lewy body disease might be related to these diseases, or that they sometimes happen together. lewy body disease usually begins between the ages of 50 and 85. the disease gets worse over time. there is no cure. treatment focuses on drugs to help symptoms. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards based summary: Dementia, Lewy Body, also known as lewy body dementia, is related to multiple system atrophy and dementia, and has symptoms including autosomal dominant inheritance, dementia and delusions. An important gene associated with Dementia, Lewy Body is SNCA (synuclein, alpha (non A4 component of amyloid precursor)), and among its related pathways is Neuroscience. The compounds polysaccharide and hydrogen have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain.

Disease Ontology:8 A dementia and a synucleinopathy that is characterized by the development of abnormal proteinaceous (alpha-synuclein) cytoplasmic inclusions, called lewy bodies, throughout the brain that results in progressive decline in mental abilities.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Lewy bodies dementia is one of the most common types of dementia. the central feature of this condition is progressive cognitive decline, combined with three additional defining features: (1) fluctuations in alertness and attention, such as frequent drowsiness, lethargy, lengthy periods of time spent staring into space, or disorganized speech; (2) recurrent visual hallucinations, and (3) parkinsonian motor symptoms, such as rigidity and the loss of spontaneous movement. although the exact cause of this condition is unknown, symptoms result from the build-up of abnormal structures, called lewy bodies, inside the brain. this condition usually occurs sporadically, in people with no known family history of the disease. however, rare familial cases have been reported. last updated: 1/12/2012

NINDS:43 Is one of the most common types of progressive dementia. The central features of DLB include progressive cognitive decline, ?fluctuations? in alertness and attention, visual hallucinations, and parkinsonian motor symptoms, such as slowness of movement, difficulty walking, or rigidity.
