Abstract

Nonamnestic (or atypical) presentations of neurodegenerative dementias are underrecognized and underdiagnosed, including posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) syndrome, which is characterized by prominent visuospatial and visuoperceptual dysfunction at presentation. It is most commonly due t...read more
