We describe the early clinical, neuropsychological and brain imaging findings as well as the results from followup investigations in 5 patients belonging to the same family. Episodic memory failure was the initial symptom in all patients, indicating hippocampal involvement. Over time, however, increasing personality and behavioural disturbances suggest additional frontal dysfunction. Subjects The pedigree presents 7 dementia cases.

These findings naturally lead to the question of what neuropathological changes underlie emotion recognition deficits in these two groups.
