Clinical characterization of frontotemporal lobar degeneration with concurrent Lewy body disease

Takeaway

  • Concurrent Lewy body disease (LBD) in frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) occurred in 7% of the study population with a range of clinical phenotypes, including 5 cases with dual dementia and movement disorder.

Why this matters

  • The clinical and demographic description of FTLD with LBD (FTLD+LBD) helps clarify the phenotype of this less-characterized FTLD pathology and may assist in diagnosis.
