Lewy Body and Parkinson's Disease Dementia
Join us for our 26th iGeriCare Live Event with Drs. Anthony Levinson and Richard Sztramko. Lewy body diseases are a group of conditions caused by deposits of an abnormal protein called Lewy bodies inside the brain cells. There are 3 types of Lewy body diseases: Parkinson disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and Parkinson disease dementia. We will discuss the similarities, differences, and possible treatments for the three types of Lewy body diseases.
