Case report

Early use of memantine in the treatment of Lewy body dementia

H. Vanhaute, P. Persoons

Early use of memantine in the treatment of Lewy body dementia (lbd) is a common type of major neurocognitive disorder (ncd), which is difficult to treat. The use of memantine can be an early treatment strategy. This is illustrated by a case of an 80-year-old patient whose cognition, motor skills and perception disorders reacted favourably to treatment with memantine. The beneficial effect, however, was soon lost after the treatment was discontinued, but reappeared after the medication was reintroduced.
