Weegy: Dementia as a clinical syndrome is characterised by global cognitive impairment, which represents a decline from previous level of functioning, and is associated with impairment in functional abilities and, in many cases, [ [ [ behavioural and psychiatric disturbances. Several formal definitions exist, such as that of the ICD-10. There are a number of conditions that cause the symptoms of dementia. Alzheimer?s disease (AD) accounts for around 60% of all cases; other common causes in older people include cerebrovascular disease (vascular dementia [VaD]) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) (accounting for 15?20% of cases each). In cases of young onset, frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is also a common cause, second only to AD.Dementia can be distinguished from the mild and variable cognitive decline asso- ciated with normal ageing by the severity and global nature of cognitive impairment and the accompanying functional disability that results. More challenging is its distinction from more subtle patterns of cognitive impairment which fall short of the standard definitions of dementia but which may represent a ?pre-clinical? dementia state. ] ] ]
