Senile dementia is one of the major health problems confronting mankind in this century. To some extent the problem has, of course, always existed. The condition was sufficiently troubling to classical philosophers and jurists to have apparently provoked comments by Solon in approximately 500 B. C. and Plato in the fourth century B. C. (Plutarch 1967 translation; Plato 1921 translation). Medical recognition can be traced at least as far back as the second century A. D. (Adams 1861). However, several factors have converged in

Frequently dementia is treated as synonymous with Alzheimer's disease. However, while this is the most common form of dementia, it only accounts for around 50% of all dementia cases; there are also many cases of non-typical Alzheimer's. There is a need for neurologists and psychiatrists to be more aware of the many different forms of dementia to enable them to diagnose and manage sufferers, and their families, as individually and humanely as possible. Offering a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and management,

Further growth is likely, especially now that we appear to have crossed the threshold of effective treatment for many patients with dementia. With these advances has come the recognition of the necessity for an interdisciplinary approach to management. Diagnosis and Management of
