Dennis Selkoe, MD, introduces the topic of dementia with mixed pathologies by outlining the respective prevalence of several dementia etiologies. He expands by describing the key hypotheses of Alzheimer’s disease pathophysiology and highlighting where overlaps with other dementia pathologies may occur, with a particular focus on vascular pathology and cardiovascular risk factors. The panel members are invited to discuss how cases with mixed pathologies impact their clinical practice before Dr. Selkoe introduces the patient case study, which will be referred to throughout the symposium.
