Objective: Renal dysfunction has been linked with increased risk for cognitive impairment and dementia, but studies are conflicting. For that reason, the aim of the present systematic review and meta-analysis is to summarize the best available evidence on the prospective association between potential markers of renal dysfunction and development of cognitive impairment or dementia.

Dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson disease with dementia

The article by Thomas et al. validated 123I-FP-CIT dopaminergic neuroimaging for the diagnosis of autopsy-proven dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). [1] The authors depicted 3 patients with DLB who met pathologic criteria for LBD but had normal 123I-FP-CIT imaging. [1] Although further description concerning severity of parkinsonism remains unclear, these patients may not have severe parkinsonism.
