OBJECTIVE: Asymmetric lobar degenerations are clinical
syndromes which affect primarily one or more than one cerebral lobe and
result progressive language and/or behaviour and/or cognitive dysfunction.
METHODS:
We report the clinical, neuropsychological and
neuroimaging results of 5 patients with asymmetric lobar degeneration
an one or more than one clinical syndrome according to Frontotemporal
Lobar Degeneration: A Consensus on Clinical Diagnostic Criteria.
RESULTS: Asymmetric lobar degeneration may be one of the largest
entities after Alzheimer Disease to cause dementia. Not only frontal lobe
dementia but also progressive language disorder and corticobasal
degeneration syndrome can be produced by frontotemporal lobar
degeneration and both clinical and pathological overlap of the
syndromes can be seen. The recognition of the relationship between the
clinical syndromes has important implications in the diagnosis and
treatment of dementias.
CONCLUSION:

Keywords: Asymmetric lobar degeneration, frontal lobe dementia, progressive nonfluent aphasia, corticobasal degeneration syndrome, Pick Complex.
