MalaCards based summary: Dementia, Frontotemporal, also known as frontotemporal dementia, is related to dementia and tauopathy, and has symptoms including autosomal dominant inheritance, hyperorality and frontal lobe dementia. An important gene associated with Dementia, Frontotemporal is MAPT (microtubule-associated protein tau), and among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Alzheimer's disease. The compounds spec-t and vitamin b12 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain and temporal lobe, and related mouse phenotype other.

Disease Ontology:8 A basal ganglia disease characterized by progressive neuronal loss predominantly involving the frontal and/or temporal lobes of the brain resulting in a gradual and progressive decline in behavior or language.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Frontotemporal dementia describes a group of conditions associated with shrinking of the frontal and temporal anterior lobes of the brain. symptoms include either variable changes in behavior (e.g., impulsive, bored, listless, lack of social contact, lack of empathy, distractibility, blunted emotions, compulsive behavior, decreased energy and motivation) or problems with language (e.g., difficulty making or understanding speech). spatial skills and memory remain intact. there is a strong genetic component to the disease; it often runs in families. there is no cure for frontotemporal dementia at this time, as a result treatment remains supportive.although the name and classification of ftd has been a topic of discussion for over a century, the current classification of the syndrome groups together pick’s disease, primary progressive aphasia, and semantic dementia as ftd. some doctors propose adding corticobasal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy to ftd and calling the group pick complex. you can click on the links to view the gard pages on these conditions. last updated: 8/22/2011

NINDS:43 Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) describes a clinical syndrome associated with shrinking of the frontal and temporal anterior lobes of the brain. Originally known as Pick?s disease, the name and classification of FTD has been a topic of discussion for over a century.
