     Rarely dementia can develop in mid the forties, this usually occurs with specific types of dementia, such as fronto-temporal, or dementia associated with other disease such as Down Syndrome, Huntington's disease, alcohol related, or HIV associated, but it can occur in Alzheimer's disease.  In general the prevalence of dementia increases with age from ages 65 to 90
