Resumen

RODRIGUEZ MUTUBERRIA, Liván  y  SERRA VALDES, Yusimí. Caracterización clínico-imagenológica de la enfermedad de Binswanger. Rev cubana med [online]. 2002, vol.41, n.3, pp.174-177. ISSN 0034-7523.

A review was made to go deep into the understanding of vascular dementias that behave as the second cause of dementia in practice. Binswanger’s disease is one of the most important among them. Its detection has progressively increased with the continual improvement of the radiological diagnostic tools that allow to identify the ischemic damage of the hemispherical cerebral white matter and the presence of lacunar infarctions. It is a disease of chronic course and inexorably progressive that is characterized by the association of subcortical cognitive dysfunction, evidence of cerebrovascular disease, Parkinsonian rigidity and vesical dysfunction with a characteristic imaging picture. The clinical picture and the main imaging characteristics are explained in this paper and the pathogeny of the disease is briefly described.

Palabras clave : DEMENTIA, VASCULAR [radiography]; DEMENTIA, VASCULAR [diagnosis]; DEMENTIA, VASCULAR [etiology]; TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED; NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE.
