C33 - Non-Alzheimer's Dementia I: Frontotemporal Dementias and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): Gil Rabinovici MD
Description: Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) represent important, likely underdiagnosed, causes of neurodegenerative dementia. FTD is as common as Alzheimer's disease (AD) in patients presenting with an early-onset dementia (under age 65), whereas CTE is increasingly recognized through autopsy in individuals exposed to repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (through contact sports, military exposures, and other high-risk endeavors) who present with neurobehavioral decline. Faculty will present a case-based approach to introduce the diverse clinical presentations of these disorders, and provide an update on biomarker development and advances in understanding the genetic and molecular underpinnings of these disorders. This program complements C51: Non-Alzheimer's Dementia II: Lewy Body Dementias and Other Parkinsonian Dementias, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to apply up-to-date clinical criteria and diagnostic tools to classify the different subtypes of FTD, to identify individuals at risk for CTE, and to differentiate FTD and CTE from AD. Improving clinical diagnosis and in vivo prediction of molecular pathology is critical in preparation for emerging disease-specific therapies for these disorders.
