Overview Frontotemporal dementia is an umbrella term for a group of uncommon brain disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Anticlotting and blood pressure-lowering drugs can help prevent another stroke. Additional studies are needed to investigate the role of other novel promising neuroimaging or fluid biomarkers such as cortical mean diffusivity or neurofilament light chain levels in plasma to increase the diagnostic accuracy of VAS and to differentiate bvFTD cases without underlying FTLD.
FTLD results in variable clinical manifestation as one of the syndromes with behavioral and language variants, which in turn overlap with some related motor degenerative conditions. Second, VAS included in this study did not assess subcortical cortical regions that could be relevant for the diagnosis of bvFTD ie, thalamus or basal ganglia. Key Points Question Can widely available measures of atrophy on magnetic resonance imaging increase diagnostic certainty of underlying frontotemporal lobar degeneration FTLD and estimate clinical deterioration in the behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia bvFTD?
The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curve AUROC were calculated for the differentiation of participants with bvFTD-HC and bvFTD-LC and controls. Logopenic PPA: A person has trouble finding the right words during a conversation but can understand words and sentences.

There are three types of frontotemporal disorders FTD : behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia bvFTDprimary progressive aphasia PPAand movement disorders. Neuromuscular weakness—Severe weakness, cramps, and rippling movements in the muscles. These previously published VAS were optimized to improve their usability and consistency eg, precise slice selection for ratingvalidated in a large postmortem study by Harper et al, and included a 5-point anterior temporal scale,a 5-point medial temporal lobe atrophy scale, a 4-point posterior atrophy scale, a 4-point orbitofrontal scale, a 4-point anterior cingulate scale, and a 4-point frontoinsula scale.
This mutation can cause a frontotemporal disorder, ALS, or both conditions.
Cerebral atrophy will show up on brain imaging scans like these:• The most prominent symptom may be apraxia, the inability to use the hands or arms to perform a movement despite normal strength, such as difficulty closing buttons or operating small appliances.
