Few studies have examined white matter hyperintensities (WMH) along the cognitive continuum between single-domain amnestic mild cognitive impairment (sd-aMCI) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The aims of our study were to explore relationships between the extent and location of WMH and disease severity along the cognitive continuum and to determine whether differences in the distribution of WMH could be predictive of specific patterns of cognitive impairment. We compared cognitive function, vascular risk factors, and regional (frontal lobe, parieto-occipital [PO] lobe, temporal lobe, periventricular [PV] white matter and deep white matter) WMH volume in 37 patients with mild AD, 23 patients with…
