23 Possible Causes for Frontotemporal/Subcortical Dementia, Sleep Disturbance

  • Alzheimer Disease

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

    […] with Lewy bodies is characterized by the presence of Lewy bodies in the subcortical and cortical (frontotemporal) regions of the brain, as well as amyloid plaques.[web.archive.org] The NPI sleep disturbances score significantly improved and the number of DLB patients who had sleep disturbances decreased after taking donepezil.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Self-reports of sleep quality may lead to an underestimation of sleep disturbances in AD, possibly influenced by anosognosia, compared to normal elderly individuals who complain[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinson-Dementia Syndrome

    Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal dementia are therefore sometimes classed as "cortical dementias."[memorylossonline.com] Sleep disturbances, including excessive daytime drowsiness and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep disorder.[alz.org] People who have dementia with Lewy bodies may also experience sleep disturbances and visual hallucinations. They might have an unsteady walking pattern.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 1

    dementia: Behavioral variant Aphasia EOM: Limited or Apraxic Laboratory NCV: Mild slow; CMAP amplitudes small EMG: Fibrillations; Fasciculations MRI: Subcortical atrophy[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Drugs also are available to help individuals with pain, depression, sleep disturbances, and constipation.[ninds.nih.gov] Muscle cramps occur in almost all patients and may cause severe pain and sleep disturbance. Physical therapy can ameliorate many of the painful symptoms of ALS.[aafp.org]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    dementia, associated with either clinically possible or definite MND.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sleep disturbance is common. Autonomic failure is less common than in Parkinson's disease with the exception of incontinence.[cmdg.org] Some patients experience sleep disturbances such as frequent awakenings and changes in sleeping patterns.[rarediseases.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

  • Frontotemporal Dementia

    Brain imaging Patterns of white matter changes in frontotemporal dementia subtypes Brain atrophy is found in specific cortical and subcortical regions in frontotemporal dementia[neura.edu.au] Some symptoms of dementia that we can successfully manage with medication include: Anxiety Obsessive-compulsive behaviors Insomnia and related sleep disturbances Additionally[stanfordhealthcare.org] Abstract The behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) is characterised by personality change with a decline in cognition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
