Mixed Dementia is a condition where changes representing more than one type of dementia are present. Most commonly, this is Alzheimer's and vascular dementia.

For diagnostic and assessment purposes, it is important to note that vascular dementia is no longer recognized as its own disorder by The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V), and is now listed as an etiological subtype of either Major or Mild Neurocognitive Disorder.
