Abstract

1. A case of a superannuated man, free of dementia despite his advanced age, is presented to illustrate that there is not necessarily a direct relationship between age and dementia. This man, on detailed study, was found to have high intellectual endowment and good emotional resources.2. Dynamic concepts of aging are discussed and the speculation presented that strong ego resources may play a role in resisting the onset of dementia in advancing age.
