RAMIREZ, Laura et al. Frontotemporal Dementia: Right Temporal Variant, report of 2 cases. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.1, pp.54-60. ISSN 0120-8748.

Right temporal frontotemporal dementia is an anatomic variant of frontotemporal dementia. It is associated with some characteristic behavioral and cognitive symptoms: topographic agnosia, spatial disorientation, prosopagnosia, obsessive behaviors, aggressiveness, impulsiveness, disinhibition and lack of empathy. Here we report two clinical cases, that, from a clinical and radiologic point of view, illustrate the right variant of frontotemporal dementia.

Keywords : Topographic agnosia; Frontotemporal dementia; Obsessive behavior; Right temporal lobe; Prosopagnosia; Theory of mind.
