Abstract

This article describes the remarkable progress that has been made over the past decade in identifying the genetic contribution to frontotemporal dementia. The clinical and neuropathologic features of frontotemporal dementia with parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 and the nature of the mutations in the progranulin and microtubule-associated protein tau genes are emphasized.
