Dementias represent nearly the most frequent diseases of the elderly population, out of which nearly 60% are related to the Alzheimer's dementia. According to the United Nations prognosis the number of patients suffering from this disease will raise from 25,5 million of cases, registered in 2000 up to 63 million in 2030, even 114 million in 2050. Therefore the recognition of this disease, earlier and exact treatment are substantially important both for the patient and the society. The treatment of this disease requires multidisciplinary approach. Thus we would like to focus on the neurologist role in this process.
