Twins of identical appearance were both affected by Alzheimer's senile dementia. In one, dementia began in her late 60s. She died at age 74. In the other, onset was at age 83. She died of ovarian carcinoma at age 85. The histopathologic findings of Alzheimer's disease were confirmed in both twin sisters.
