Abstract

Considering the incidence of dementia, the development of procedures that allow correct differential diagnosis is gaining increasing importance. The analysis of spinal fluid from 632 patients, who were admitted with suspected dementia, diagnosed dementia or dementia of unclear etiology, showed that there was high differential diagnostic power for tau protein, but not for beta-amyloid.
