Frontotemporal dementia and pharmacologic interventions

, : Frontotemporal dementia and pharmacologic interventions. Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences 22(1): 19-29

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration is comprised of three syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), semantic dementia, and progressive nonfluent aphasia, with FTD being the most prevalent. FTD is characterized predominantly by character change and disordered social conduct. A variety of pathologies may underlie these syndromes, yet it is the location of the pathology rather than the type that dictates the clinical features of the disease. Several medications have been investigated to measure efficacy of treatment in FTD, often with mixed results. The authors review these findings and comment on future directions.
