Summaries for Pick Disease

NINDS : 51 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.  The current designation 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.  These designations will continue to be debated.  As it is defined today, the symptoms of FTD fall into two clinical patterns that involve either (1) changes in behavior, or (2) problems with language.  The first type features behavior that can be either impulsive (disinhibited) or bored and listless (apathetic) and includes inappropriate social behavior; lack of social tact; lack of empathy; distractability; loss of insight into the behaviors of oneself and others; an increased interest in sex; changes in food preferences; agitation or, conversely, blunted emotions; neglect of personal hygiene; repetitive or compulsive behavior, and decreased energy and motivation.  The second type primarily features symptoms of language disturbance, including difficulty making or understanding speech, often in conjunction with the behavioral type’s symptoms.  Spatial skills and memory remain intact.  There is a strong genetic component to the disease; FTD often runs in families.

MalaCards based summary : Pick Disease, also known as pick's disease, is related to niemann-pick disease and niemann-pick disease, type c1, and has symptoms including personality changes, irritability and apathy. An important gene associated with Pick Disease is MAPT (Microtubule Associated Protein Tau), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Neuroscience and Alzheimers Disease Pathway. The drugs Simvastatin and Rasagiline have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, testes and brain, and related phenotypes are behavior/neurological and growth/size/body region

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 pick’s disease is a neurological condition characterized by a slowly progressive deterioration of behavior, personality, or language. people with pick's disease have abnormal substances (called pick bodies) inside nerve cells in the damaged areas of the brain. pick bodies contain an abnormal form of a protein called tau. this protein is found in all nerve cells, but people with pick's disease have an abnormal amount or type of this protein. symptoms often present sometime in the 50s, though it can occur as early as age 20 or as late as age 80. the course of the disease varies from person to person. the underlying cause of pick's disease is unknown. in some cases, the disease runs in families. while there is no treatment to slow the progression of the disease, medications can be used to treat individual symptoms. last updated: 2/5/2013

OMIM : 54
Pick disease refers to the neuropathologic finding of 'Pick bodies,' which are argyrophilic, intraneuronal inclusions, and 'Pick cells,' which are enlarged neurons. The clinical correlates of Pick disease of brain include those of frontotemporal dementia, which encompass the behavioral variant of FTD, semantic dementia, and progressive nonfluent aphasia (summary by Piguet et al., 2011). Kertesz (2003) suggested the term 'Pick complex' to represent the overlapping syndromes of FTD, primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), progressive supranuclear palsy (601104), and FTD with motor neuron disease. He noted that frontotemporal dementia may also be referred to as 'clinical Pick disease,' and that the term 'Pick disease' should be restricted to the pathologic finding of Pick bodies. (172700)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Pick disease of the brain: A rare form of dementia pathologically defined by severe atrophy, neuronal loss and gliosis. It is characterized by the occurrence of tau-positive inclusions, swollen neurons (Pick cells) and argentophilic neuronal inclusions known as Pick bodies that disproportionally affect the frontal and temporal cortical regions. Clinical features include aphasia, apraxia, confusion, anomia, memory loss and personality deterioration.
