Primary progressive aphasia is a more rare — or possibly underdiagnosed — condition often
mistaken for frontotemporal dementia or Pick’s disease. First symptoms often present as
the inability to grasp the appropriate words in speech and as yet there is no known effective
treatment. Drs Demi Onalaja and Bushra Rauf explore this rare form of dementia to help
clinicians differentiate it from Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of dementia.
