Current research into the non-cognitive psychiatric complications of dementing disorders underscores the importance of such conditions in the clinical care of these patients. Here we review four groups of these complications: mood and neurovegetative disturbances, troublesome behaviors, personality changes, and delusions and hallucinations. We place special emphasis on the epidemiology, cause, clinical picture, and effect these disorders have on the course and outcome of dementing illness.
