All of the currently available guidelines specify a two-stage procedure. The first stage entails performing a comprehensive description, diagnosis and confirmation of the dementia syndrome. The second stage involves the precise etiological classification. Alzheimer’s disease represents the most common cause followed by vascular dementia and Parkinson’s disease dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal lobar degeneration and others. Dementia encompasses a variety of underlying conditions. This review gives an overview of the clinically oriented diagnosis according to the updated S3 guidelines in Germany.
