The notion that cerebrovascular disease can cause severe cognitive deficits has been recognized in literature for several centuries. However, the diagnosis of vascular dementia (VaD) is still problematic; this issue is addressed very well in this book. The first and last chapters by Drs Bowler and Hachinski provide a clear insight of the current problems in the clinical diagnosis of VaD and set the framework for future research.
