Background Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is increasingly recognized as a common cause of dementia in older people. However, its true frequency remains unclear, with previous studies reporting a prevalence range from zero to 22.8% of all dementia cases. This review aimed to establish the population prevalence and incidence for DLB and to compare this to its prevalence in secondary care settings. Method A literature review of all relevant population and clinical studies was conducted using… Expand
The Prevalence and Incidence of Dementia with Lewy Bodies: a Systematic Review

TLDR
DLB becomes more common with increasing age and accounts for about 5% of all dementia cases in older populations and constitue environ 5% de tous the cas of démence dans the populations plus âgées. Expand
Clinical prevalence of Lewy body dementia
TLDR
It is found that the frequency of clinical diagnosis of DLB varied between geographical regions in the UK, and that the prevalence of both DLB and PDD was much lower than would be expected in this case series, suggesting considerable under-diagnosis of both disorders. Expand
Epidemiological Study on Dementia with Lewy Bodies
TLDR
This chapter reviews the previous studies which reported the prevalence and incidence for DLB using the data from community and secondary care setting and concludes that effort should be indispensable to dissipate the discrepancy between clinical and pathological diagnosis of DLB. Expand
Incidence and Comorbidity of Dementia with Lewy Bodies: A Population-Based Cohort Study
TLDR
The incidence of DLB was shown to be 7.10 per 100,000 person-years (95% CI = 6.63–7.59), which increased with age, and the comorbidity rates of hypertension and hyperlipidemia in DLB patients were higher in females than in males. Expand
The prevalence of dementia with Lewy bodies in a rural area of China.
TLDR
This study provides the first information of the prevalence of DLB in a rural area of China and analyzes the associated risk factors and clinical features ofDLB. Expand
Letter to the Editor The incidence and prevalence of dementia with Lewy bodies is underestimated
  • B. Boot

  • 2013
TLDR
The authors do an excellent job explaining the complexities underlying the significant data variation in the source reports, and expand upon their arguments as to why the true incidence and prevalence may be significantly higher than the reported ranges. Expand
Delirium and dementia with Lewy bodies: distinct diagnoses or part of the same spectrum?
TLDR
It is hypothesised that delirium may be an early marker for future DLB, which would aid early diagnosis of DLB and identify those at high risk of developing dementia. Expand
Mortality in dementia with Lewy bodies compared with Alzheimer’s dementia: a retrospective naturalistic cohort study
TLDR
Survival from first presentation with cognitive impairment was markedly shorter in DLB compared with AD, independent of age, sex, physical comorbidity or antipsychotic prescribing, which adds to existing evidence for poorer survival for DLB versus AD. Expand
Clinical diagnosis of Lewy body dementia
TLDR
The results show the pathway to diagnosis of DLB is longer and more complex than for non-DLB dementia and there were also marked differences between regions in the thresholds clinicians adopt for diagnosing DLB and also in the use of dopamine transporter imaging. Expand
Clinical Presentation, Diagnostic Features, and Mortality in Dementia with Lewy Bodies.
TLDR
Examining in detail, symptom patterns at presentation and their association with outcomes, including mortality, in a large naturalistic DLB cohort from a secondary care sample to establish initial presentation, neuropsychological profile, and mortality is examined. Expand

A systematic review of prevalence and incidence studies of dementia with Lewy bodies.
TLDR
Although the literature on the prevalence and incidence of DLB is limited, there is a general consensus that DLB must be considered in the range of neurodegenerative conditions in the elderly. Expand
Frequency and Case Identification of Dementia with Lewy Bodies Using the Revised Consensus Criteria
TLDR
DLB is common in patients with mild dementia, and is the second most common type of dementia, as the introduction of new clinical criteria for DLB leads to an increase in the proportion diagnosed with probable DLB. Expand
Dementia with Lewy bodies according to the consensus criteria in a general population aged 75 years or older
TLDR
In a general population aged 75 years and older, the prevalence of a disorder fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of DLB is half that of Alzheimer’s disease and the same as for vascular dementia. Expand
Islington study of dementia subtypes in the community.
TLDR
Alzheimer's disease is confirmed as the most common cause of dementia in older people, followed by vascular dementia, and DLB and FLD occur sufficiently often to be seen frequently in clinical practice and should be incorporated into future editions of standard diagnostic criteria. Expand
Dementia with lewy bodies: diagnosis and management for primary care providers.
TLDR
Dementia with Lewy bodies is an often missed diagnosis and a high clinical suspicion is helpful in accurate diagnosis, and presence of any of the core symptoms should initiate clinical suspicion of DLB. Expand

TLDR
Prevalence of dementia, AD and FTD were similar to those reported, while prevalence of VD and LBD were lower. Expand

TLDR
The prevalence of dementia in elderly people from the Caribbean coast of Venezuela is much higher than frequencies previously reported for developing countries. Expand
Subtypes of Dementia: A Study from a Memory Clinic in India
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the clinical profiles of dementia subtypes in a clinic population are influenced by the population’s demographic profile, cardiovascular risk factor burden, sociocultural attitudes about cognitive impairment, and possibly genetic factors. Expand

TLDR
The present sudy clearly showed that AD is more prevalent than VD, and was higher in women for AD, while that of VD was the same in both sexes. Expand

TLDR
It could be more appropriate, for a consensus statement, to conclude that finding EEG abnormalities does not exclude the diagnosis of LBD, instead of asserting that EEG abnormalities support LBD diagnosis. Expand
