Résumé
Alzheimer's dementia is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality with devastating consequences for the affected individuals and their family. Pneumonia is a common complication in patients with advanced dementia that is frequently the direct cause of death. Despite the relatively well-established progressive and non-reversible trajectory of Alzheimer's disease, these patients still frequently receive curative treatments during the last months of their lives and access to palliative care is often delayed. The approach and therapeutic options to manage pneumonia at the advanced stage of Alzheimer's disease are discussed in this article.
