The main controversies in the field of vascular dementia include the nosological classification and the concept of this disorder, the definition of dementia, specific neuropsycholotical test for vascular dementia, the differences between various diagnostic criteria, and early detection and diagnosis of vascular dementia. The concept of vascular dementia is a field in a state of profound change. Several consensus criteria are currently being used for the clinical diagnosis of vascular dementia, however the ability of these criteria to distinguish vascular dementia from Alzheimer’s disease is limited. This review details the state of knowledge that we have now reached concerning the concept and the current diagnostic criteria of vascular dementia. Finally, we present the Korean vascular cognitive impairment harmonization study which is ongoing.
