481 Possible Causes for Frontal Lobe Atrophy

  • Perry Syndrome

    Perry syndrome is a rare form of autosomal dominant Parkinsonism with respiratory failure recently defined as being due to mutations in the DCTN1 gene. We describe a new family carrying a G71R mutation in the DCTN1 gene. The proband displayed a series of distinctive features not previously described in Perry[…][]

  • Late-onset Depression

    Depression with late onset is associated with right frontal lobe atrophy. Psychol Med . 2003;33(4):675–681.[]

  • Classic Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Syndrome

    Macroscopic examination of the brain shows midbrain atrophy and substantia nigra depigmentation, along with mild frontal lobe atrophy while microscopic examination reveals[]

  • Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia Type Al-Gazali

    lobe atrophy on CT scan of the brain, lymphoedema and a distinctive facial appearance.[] Abstract We report an inbred Omani family with four children in two sibships affected with a recessive type of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia , associated with macrocephaly frontal[]

  • Early-Onset Cerebellar Ataxia

    With brain imagery we see cerebellar atrophy in 88% of cases and frontal lobe atrophy in 50% of cases. 52% of our patients have nystagmus, an ocular phenotype.[]

  • Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

    Volumetric MRI analysis had revealed thalamic and mamillary body atrophy in the patient group as well as frontal lobe atrophy with relative sparing of medial temporal lobe[] However, it is also the case that CT and MRI investigations, as well as autopsy studies, show a variable degree of general cortical atrophy, and that the frontal lobes can[]

  • Light Chain Disease

    Serum concentrations correlated particularly with frontal lobe atrophy rate (r 0.53, p 0.003).[] Higher concentrations may reflect the intensity of the disease in FTD and are associated with more rapid atrophy of the frontal lobes.[]

  • Malignant Catatonia

  • Selegiline

  • Aplasia or Hypoplasia of Halluces
