There are many causes of dementia, including neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, blood flow-related (vascular) disorders such as multi-infarct cognitive impairment, inherited disorders such as Huntington's disease, and infections such as HIV. The most common causes of dementia include:

Degenerative neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's, frontotemporal lobar degenerations, dementia with Lewy bodies, Parkinson's, and Huntington's
Vascular disorders, such as multi-infarct dementia, which is caused by multiple strokes in the brain
Infections that affect the central nervous system, such as HIV dementia complex and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
Chronic drug use
Depression
Certain types of hydrocephalus, an accumulation of fluid within the brain that can result from developmental abnormalities, infections, injury, or brain tumors
