Answer

Answer

Another subgroup of patients with FTD experiences progressive right hemisphere dysfunction. Why reports of progressive right hemisphere degeneration have been so much less common than those of progressive aphasia is unclear. [7]

Finally, a genetic disease with combined inclusion body myopathy and FTD has been described. [30]
