Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) and Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) are clinically characterized mainly by gradual progressive impairment of behavior and cognitive functions. The accurate diagnosis of both disorders are very difficult due to significant overlap with other neurodegenerative symptoms. Here, in the chapter, we discuss the last.
Keywords: Dementia with Lewy Bodies, α-synuclein, treatment, biomarkers, genetic association, functional imaging, frontotemporal dementia, FTLD-tau, tau protein, FTLD-TDP, TAR DNA-binding protein 43, FTLD-FUS, fused in sarcoma.
