The term "dementia" is used to describe a number of diseases, the most common of which is Alzheimer's disease (AD). Other types of dementia include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia, as well as dementias resulting from infections, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease or HIV, and from genetically inherited syndromes, such as Huntington's disease (Huntington's chorea).
