Abstract

Patients with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) may display a different cognitive pattern from Alzheimer's disease (AD) with more severe impairment performing visuospatial/visuoconstructive tasks. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the analysis of the MMSE pentagon copy could be a useful diagnostic screening tool in prodromal DLB.
