Lewy-Pick Complex [LPC]

Outline of Lewy-Pick Complex (The date of publication: September 17, 2012)

A patient is pathologically diagnosed DLB(Dementia with Lewy Bodies) with strong possibility, and clinically diagnosed FTLD(Frontotemporal lobar degeneration). With image diagnose, it is necessary to diagnose FTLD.

Thirteen(13) percent of diagnostics treatment cases.

Average case
Female at the age of 73. HDS-R is one digits, Lewy score is 7, Pick score is 7.

The patients with DLB(dementia with Lewy bodies) and FTLD(frontotemporal Lobar degeneration). September in 2012, Dr. Kono Kazuhiko proposed a new disease entity for the first time all over the world advocated.

Cases coming into the concept of LPC in the Lewy of Lewy's Pick of the Picks;
Patient falls in the LPC are expected over why one thing in FTLD-Manchester-star group classification of the aphasic syndrome is clinical diagnoses.

If Pick symptoms or semantic aphasia, and unnecessary certification in pathology from frontal temporal lobe atrophy in diagnostic imaging from frontotemporal Lobar degeneration ( FTLD ) decided at it.
Pathological complications between the two there more often than not, Frontotemporal Lobar degeneration ( FTLD ) up to 17%, the up to 21% have said that would not deny.

Seems too, however, is not the type of classical Pick's disease of Pick bodies is pathological controversy probably pathological diagnostic criteria are vague as to the LPC certification is not easy. That, however, I think I was advocating the LPC from clinical, field very reduced stress of diagnosis and evaluation.

Lewy score 3 and Pick score 4 or more only, not typical for patients is for the time being keep LPC syndrome and have detected from PSP(progressive supranuclear palsy) and Corticobasal degeneration, cognitive myotonic dystrophy, FTD-MND, etc.
