Example Question #192 : Defining Abnormalities And Disorders

What age of Alzheimer's diagnosis is considered to be early onset?

Possible Answers:

None of these

Correct answer:


The lines are rather blurry, but cases are considered early onset Alzheimer's when diagnosis occurs in the 40s or 50s. Along with the age of onset, early-onset diagnosis is based on symptomatic criteria. Unfortunately, the only way to determine the exact class of dementia, an autopsy is required to examine brain tissue.
