Frontotemporal lobar degeneration with caudate atrophy


Pattern and location of cerebral atrophy is a useful discriminator for subtypes of frontotemporal lobar degeneration. In the frontotemporal dementia subtype there is asymmetric bilateral frontal temporal atrophy greater on the right side 1. Frontotemporal dementia has also  been shown to have a propensity for caudate atrophy and this maybe initially inferred by the disproportionately dilated frontal horns of the lateral ventricle 2.
