What Is Pick's Disease?
One of the dementias.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
Pick disease is a progressive dementia characterized by the affected frontal and/ or temporal lobes. ( is part of frontotemporal dementias ).
Symptoms include behavioral and cognitive impairment ( aggressivity, inappropriate social behavior, obsessive-compulsive behavior, apathy, confusional state, speech and language abnormalities, etc.)
Treatment is multidisciplinary and mainly is directed towards the cause ( if a drug is suspected it should be discontinued for example ), diet and physical activity, neuropsychological consultation, inpatient and outpatient care, symptomatic medications, etc.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
