Frontotemporal Dementia

Often begins in the fifth to seventh decades; in this age group it is nearly as prevalent as AD. Unlike AD, behavioral symptoms may predominate in the early stages of FTD. Extremely heterogeneous; presents with combinations of disinhibition, dementia, apraxia, parkinsonism, and motor neuron disease. May be sporadic or inherited. Treatment is symptomatic; no therapies known to slow progression or improve cognitive symptoms. Many of the behaviors that accompany FTD such as depression, hyperorality, compulsions, and irritability may be helped with SSRIs.
