Case report

Frontal syndrome. A patient with a recognisable clinical picture but without a clear aetiology. A case study

B.R. Westra, J.B. Sanders, R.M. Kok

A 63-year-old man presented with behavioural disturbances but had no problems with memory or orientation. We diagnosed a frontal syndrome and we describe the symptoms and the differential diagnosis. The precise aetiology remains unclear, although an infarction of the nucleus caudatus is suspected.
