first glance, the clinical and cognitive profiles of both diseases are rather different with cortical signs only in DLB. The profile of attentional impairments and fluctuating attention (71) and the cognitive pattern at the Mattis Dementia Rating Scale (72) would be, however, rather similar in PDD and DLB, and postmortem examination revealed cortical Lewy bodies in both diseases, suggesting that their differential diagnosis may be more difficult than previously thought (73).
