What is frontotemporal dementia?
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the progressive deterioration of the frontal lobe of the brain which controls planning and judgment, emotions, speaking and understanding speech, and certain types of movement. Although there is no cure, there are some medications available to help aid in behavioral difficulties. FTD accounts for approximately 10 – 15% of dementia cases.
