Link: Clinicopathological Study of Patients With C9ORF72-Associated Frontotemporal Dementia Presenting With Delusions

Background: Several clinical studies point to a high prevalence of psychotic symptoms in frontotemporal dementia associated with C9ORF72 mutations, but clinicopathological studies addressing the association between C9ORF72 mutations and delusions are lacking.

The abstract of this interesting study can be found at http://jgp.sagepub.com/content/early/2014/10/20/0891988714554710.abstract.
