Most, but not all, cases of DLB have some degree of Alzheimer’s disease (AD)-like pathology (28,35). Senile plaques (SPs) are the most common finding with the majority being of the “diffuse” type. When neuritic plaques are present, most contain only tau-negative, ubiquitin-positive neurites. Neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and neuropil threads, containing paired helical filaments, may be found in the limbic structures and mesial temporal lobe but are uncommon in the neocortex. This pattern of pathology may be sufficient to fulfil pathological criteria for AD that are based on SP numbers (such as CERAD) (36) but not those that stress the importance of NFTs (such as Braak staging) (37).
