Recent epidemiological and clinico-pathological data suggest overlaps between Alzheimer's disease (AD) and cerebrovascular lesions (CVL) that may show some synergistic effects, but the results of studies of the relationship between AD and stroke have been controversial. The objective of this study was to compare the frequency of cerebral infarcts, hemorrhages and minor cerebrovascular lesions in autopsy-confirmed AD and age-matched control brains. Using current routine and immunohistochemical methods 173 consecutive cases of autopsy-confirmed AD and 130 age-matched controls were compared. The total incidence of vascular pathology (56.5%) in AD was significantly less than in a previously reported smaller AD autopsy cohort (82.3%) (P
