0 images remaining
Selected images from an MRI demonstrating very advanced atrophic change including:
- the hippocampi (contrary to earlier reports they can be in FTD)
- frontal and temporal lobes
The temporal arophy is more prounced than fronal atrophy. This patient also presented with more cognitive & severe memory loss than behavioural changes, which are common presenting syndrome in Pick's disease. In late stage, with inolvement of frontal lobes , it is difficult to differentiate one from other & one may have to rely more on clinical presenation.
