Subcortical dementia, in Katzman R, Terry RD, Bick KL (eds): Alzheimer 's Disease, Senile Dementia and Related Disorders.
Prevalent psychopathologies such as cortical and subcortical dementias, depression and related mood disorders, anxiety and phobias, and substance abuse are discussed.
Because early features of these diseases seem more emotional or psychiatric than intellective, the subcortical dementias may be mis- or underdiagnosed.
