Abstract

Posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) is a rare neurodegenerative syndrome characterized by insidious onset and selective, gradual decline in visuospatial and visuoperceptual skills.

We report a typical case of a patient with posterior cortical atrophy who presented initially with visuospatial deficit and apraxia. The aim of this report is to present this rare dementia subtype as a relevant differential diagnosis in respect to other neurodegenerative syndromes
