Old-Timer’s Disease or Alzheimer’s Disease :



I’ve always thought that “old-timer’s disease” was a clever if tasteless pun on “Alzheimer’s Disease”; but many people have assured me that this is a common and quite unintentional error.


Some medical authorities prefer the form “Alzheimer Disease,” though that is seldom used by nonprofessionals.
