1987) found a relationship between age and rate of decline; but they found the rate to be higher in patients with late onset. Katzman et al. (1988) failed to confirm that there is any relationship between age of onset and rate of decline. And while Haxby et al. (1992) did find a very rapid rate of decline in their two patients with early onset, they found no relationship between age and rate of decline after the age of 50.
