MalaCards based summary: Dementia, Familial, Nonspecific, also known as frontotemporal dementia, chromosome 3-linked, is related to dementia, and has symptoms including urinary incontinence, hyperorality and restlessness. An important gene associated with Dementia, Familial, Nonspecific is CHMP2B (Charged Multivesicular Body Protein 2B). Affiliated tissues include brain.
Genetics Home Reference:25 CHMP2B-related frontotemporal dementia is a progressive brain disorder that affects personality, behavior, and language. The symptoms of this disorder usually become noticeable in a person's fifties or sixties, and affected people survive about 3 to 21 years after the appearance of symptoms.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Frontotemporal dementia, chromosome 3-linked: Characterized by an onset of dementia in the late 50's initially characterized by behavioral and personality changes including apathy, restlessness, disinhibition and hyperorality, progressing to stereotyped behaviors, non-fluent aphasia, mutism and dystonia, with a marked lack of insight. The brains of individuals with FTD3 have no distinctive neuropathological features. They show global cortical and central atrophy, but no beta-amyloid deposits.
