Background: Mixed dementia is defined as the coexistence of Alzheimer's disease
(AD) and vascular dementia (VaD). As the population ages, the prevalence
of mixed dementia is likely to increase. The objectives of this study were to provide
an overview of the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and interaction of AD and
VaD in mixed dementia, and to provide a systematic literature review of the current
evidence for the pharmacologic therapy of mixed dementia.
