Few studies to date have specifically examined gender differences in patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD). A new study has investigated this issue in 26 patients with behavioural-variant FTD (Koros et al. EAN 2015; abstract F2014). Cognitive and behavioural symptoms in 26 males and females were compared based on neuropsychological and behavioural testing and patient history. The scales used were the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) and the Frontal Behavioral Inventory (FBI).
