Prevalence of Dementia in Adults with and without Down Syndrome.
Zigman, Warren B.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v100 n4 p403-12 Jan 1996
Comparison of adults with mental retardation either with or without Down syndrome and under or over 50 years of age found a significantly higher rate of dementia only in Down syndrome subjects over 50. However, the observed incidence based on functional findings was substantially below the presumed 100% prevalence of neuropathological markers of Alzheimer disease. (DB)
