Case report

Obsessive-compulsive behaviour in two patients with right temporal variant frontotemporal dementia

T. Sabbe, M. Vandenbulcke

There is often a long delay before right temporal variant of frontotemporal dementia (rtlv) is correctly diagnosed. The late diagnosis is usually due to the occurrence of psychiatric symptoms as the first signs of disease and to the relatively young age of the patient. We report two patients who were initially treated for obsessive-compulsive disorder but were later diagnosed as having rtlv.
