Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB)

Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is a form of progressive dementia. DLB is characterized by slowly progressive cognitive decline, combined with three additional defining features:

  1. fluctuations in alertness and attention
  2. frequent visual hallucinations, and
  3. motor symptoms similar to those seen in Parkinson’s disease, such as rigidity and the loss of spontaneous movement.
