Abstract

It is not uncommon for idiopathic parkinson's disease (IPD) to occur concurrently with other degenerative dementing disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. However, there has been no report about the comorbidity of IPD and frontotemporal lobar degeneration. We report a 70-year-old man diagnosed with IPD accompanied by progressive non-fluent aphasia (PA). Brain MRI showed left frontal opercular atrophy, and an 18F-FDG PET scan revealed predominant left frontotemporal hypometabolism. It remains unknown whether or not the co-occurrence of IPD and PA was coincidental.
