Abstract

The concept of vascular dementia is not still established. Its pathogenesis is not completely understood, either. It may be different among the subtypes, e.g., ischemic, hemorrhaginc, or Binswanger's disease. In this article epidemiology of vascular dementia was reviewed, based on the important findings regarding to prevalence, ethnic difference in prevalence, incidence, risk factors, and natural history and survival. We have to wait for more elegant concept of and better understanding of vascular dementia.
