Dementias can be calssified into cortical, subcortical, cortical-subcortical and multifocal ones based on the major pathological distribution within the brain. The literatures of recent knowledge about clinical features of other dementias than Alzheimer's and vascular ones, which were most frequently experienced by many clinicians were reviewed. That is, cortical dementias such as Pick's disease, frontal lobe type dementia and non-Alzheimer's type lobar atrophy including fronto-temporal dementia, progressive dysphasia, fronto-temporal dementia with motor neuron disease, and alcohol-related dementia were reviewed. Subcortical dementias such as dementias accompanying Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and progressive supranuclear palsy, and cortical-subcortical dementias such as Lewy body dementiaq and cortical-basal degeneration were also reviewed. As multifocal dementias, prion dementias including KUru, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, fatal familial insomnia and Gerstmann-Strussler-Sheinker syndrone, and AIDS dementia were also reviewed.
