Abstract:

Vascular dementia (VD) is a dementia due to vascular factors and is one of common causes of dementia. Neurotrophic factors and anticholinesterases are useful in the management of disorders such as dementia or stroke. A new phar-macological agent called cerebroprotein hydrolysate has been used in the management of dementia with promising results. Here we present a case report where cerebroprotein hydrolysate showed promising improvement in the man-agement of vascular dementia.

Key words: Cerebroprotein hydrolysate, dementia, vascular, vascular dementia.
