Loading...

It is a form of dementia associated with shrinkage of frontal and temporal anterior lobes of the brain. Originally called as Pick's disease, it is an uncommon type of disease which can affect a person's ability to think, leading to behavioral and language problems. 

It is either caused by the build up of abnormal proteins that form a cluster and become toxic or due to family history. 

The symptoms of frontotemporal dementia are-

  • Mood and behavioral changes
  • Reduced speech and conversation
  • Memory problems
  • Movement problems
It is advised to see a GP in case any of these symptoms occur.
