Frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 (FTDP-17), characterized by an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern, has recently been recognized as a distinct entity that can display a confusingly broad clinical phenotype. The pallido-ponto-nigral degeneration (PPND) variant is the prototypical example of the parkinsonism-predominant pattern of FTDP-17. A longitudinal videotape demonstration of the clinical progression of this entity in a single individual, along with brief videotape segments from three additional affected individuals, is presented in order to facilitate recognition of this disorder. © 2001 Movement Disorder Society.
