Posterior Cortical Atrophy
Posterior Cortical Atrophy also called as Benson's syndrome is a abberant variant of Alzheimer's disease, where the symptom is identified at the different part of the brain. It is one of the common Neuro degenerative disorders where the degeneration occurs in the cortex region of the brain. It is also due to the accumulation of amyloid protein in that region. The PCA affected patients show amyloid plaques and tau tangles in the neurofibrils. The challenge is that this syndrome shows distinct neuropsychological deficits still remaining as the complicated forms of Dementia. PCA has been recognized for more than two decades, and yet the condition is almost abandoned by researchers. Hence it is the most suitable topic for discussion in the Dementia conference.
