18F-FDG PET/CT findings in a case of a semantic variant of primary progressive aphasia.
 

Author(s): Semra Ince, Erdal Guzeldemir, Alper O Karacalioglu, Ozdes Emer, Engin Alagoz

Journal: Hell J Nucl Med. ;18(2):163-5.

 

Progressive speech and language disorders are commonly referred to as primary progressive aphasia (PPA), which is a clinical syndrome eroding both speech and language. Functional imaging may reveal the cause of this disorder even if structural imaging is absent. Fluorine-18- fluorodeoxyglucose ...

Primary progressive aphasia and the evolving neurology of the language network.
 

Author(s): M-Marsel Mesulam, Emily J Rogalski, Christina Wieneke, Robert S Hurley, Changiz Geula, Eileen H Bigio, Cynthia K Thompson, Sandra Weintraub

Journal: Nat Rev Neurol. 2014 Oct;10(10):554-69.

 

Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is caused by selective neurodegeneration of the language-dominant cerebral hemisphere; a language deficit initially arises as the only consequential impairment and remains predominant throughout most of the course of the disease. Agrammatic, logopenic ...
