Did the report show the frontal lobes are shrinking? Alzheimer's is a build up of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Actually a patient can have both. Add in a little vascular microhemorrhages or microischemia and he might have vascular dementia as well. Often the dementia has more than one cause.
