Abstract

The paper presents results of neuropathological examination as well as clinical and neuropsychological features typical of dementia of the frontal type (DFT). It is emphasized that DFT is a separate form of the primary degenerative dementing disorder, and that it should be differentiated from the dementing process in Alzheimer's disease.
