    ..3 to 7.7) and subcortical infarctions 2.3-fold (95% CI, 1.2 to 4.5). The effect was unchanged after accounting for amyloid angiopathy. apoE epsilon4 increases the odds of chronic cerebral infarction detected at autopsy in older persons. ..

    ..Limbic-type Lewy body pathology is specifically associated with lower and more rapid decline in visuospatial skills. The effect of Lewy body pathology on cognition appears to be independent of Alzheimer's disease pathology. ..

    ..Overall, clinic-based persons have more Lewy bodies and atypical pathologies. The spectrum of pathologies underlying cognitive impairment in clinic-based cohorts differs from community-based cohorts. ..

    ..In this review, we provide a clinical-pathological perspective on the role of multiple brain pathologies in dementia followed by a review of the available clinical and biomarker data on some of the mixed pathologies. ..

    ..Clinically diagnosed probable AD and MCI, even amnestic MCI, are pathologically heterogeneous disorders, with many persons exhibiting mixed pathologies. ..

    ..Finally, because dementia in older persons often results from mixed pathology and the clinical phenotypes overlap, some risk factors may increase risk for clinical Alzheimer's disease through an increase in vascular pathology. ..
