Pick disease of the brain is a very rare neurodegenerative disorder that is classified as a form of frontotemporal dementia. This disease is caused by a buildup of tau proteins in neurons, which accumulate into spherical aggregations known as Pick bodies and lead to the degeneration of neurons in the frontotemporal lobe. Pick’s only accounts for 5% of all progressive dementias, and the cause of this disorder is not known, although the NPC2 gene is related. Symptoms that stem from Pick’s disease include behavioral and personality changes, as well as speech impairment and memory loss. The average onset of this disease is between 40 and 60 years old, and the progression is typically slow, with the severe symptoms not showing up until the late stage of the illness. There is no cure for Pick’s disease, and the doctor’s main concern is controlling behavior and aiding the lost sensory functions.
