Abstract

Recent clinical and neuropathological studies suggest the possibility of distinguishing some forms of cortical degeneration from Alzheimer's disease. We report data on the frequency of non-Alzheimer forms of cerebral atrophy that were diagnosed on the basis of clinical criteria. Six examples of these neurological disorders are described: two patients with Lewy body disease; two patients with frontal lobe type dementia, one of whom had associated features of motor neuron disease; a patient with primary progressive aphasia; and a patient with a familial dementia that was probably an atypical form of Pick's disease.
