Patient Comments: Pick Disease - Progression

What has been/was your relative or friend's progression of Pick disease (dementia)?

Comment from: NACHI, 55-64 Male (Caregiver) Published: May 30

My husband was diagnosed with Pick"s disease six years ago. His doctor said the brain scan showed extreme shrinkage of his brain that suggested the disease started many years ago. One symptom I had noticed when I first met my husband was that he could not remember names of people and that sometime he could not even remember the names of his siblings.
