  1. Types and phenomenologic subtypes of dementia in Taiwan : A psychiatric inpatient study.

    Article - En anglais

    An investigation of 91 consecutive psychiatric inpatients with suspected dementia was designed to evaluate the relative frequency of different types and phenomenologic subtypes of dementia in Taiwan.

    The type of dementia was reviewed to determine different aetiologies.

    Phenomenologic subtypes of dementia were investigated according to the classifications of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

    In contrast to previous studies in Taiwan, dementia of the Alzheimer's type (59.3%) was more frequent than vascular dementia (26.4%). The relative frequencies of phenomenologic subtypes were as follows ; uncomplicated, 43% ; with delusion, 38% ; with delirium, 14% ; with depression, 5%. This is the first report regarding the clinical subtypes of psychiatric demented inpatients in Taiwan.

    In spite of correct aetiological diagnosis of dementia, this report highlights the non-cognitive problems of dementia.
