Frontotemporal dementia (frontotemporal lobar degeneration or FTD) is an umbrella term for a range of relatively uncommon disorders that largely affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain — the areas generally associated with personality, behavior and language. In frontotemporal dementia, portions of the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain atrophy or shrink. Signs and symptoms vary, depending upon the portion of the brain affected.
