Different courses of Alzheimer disease are observed in clinical practice. The rapidly progressive form could be
associated with the presence of a major microcirculatory involvement and hemodynamic insufficiency. This short review
aims to provide an overview of the current knowledge of cerebrovascular contribution to Alzheimer disease presentation
and progression, hypothesizing the possible vascular markers of rapidly progressive form.
Keywords: Alzheimer disease, cerebral blood flow, disease progression, hemodynamics, risk factors, transcranial Doppler.
