Case series of clinically probable dementia with lewy bodies in two Native Americans
While incidence and prevalence of dementias have been assessed in some tribes, little is known about whether the different types of dementias that affect whites also affect Native Americans. Here, we report 2 cases of clinically probable dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) that fulfill McKeith Consensus Criteria in an 84-year-old full-blooded Navajo woman and a 78-year-old full-blooded Navajo male assessed in a neurology clinic.
