Abstract: This article details a case study of a 40 - year - old male diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia FTD with motor neuron disease MND features, presenting with a complex array of symptoms including progressive slowness, incontinence, difficulty in walking, chewing, and swallowing, alongside significant muscle wasting and emotional liability. The patients diagnostic journey is explored through physical and neurological examinations, imaging studies, and other investigative procedures, which revealed multiple foci of micro hemorrhages, diffuse cerebral and cerebellar atrophy, and involvement of both upper and lower motor neurons indicative of a combined FTD - MND syndrome. The discussion highlights the diagnostic challenges posed by the overlap of symptoms with other conditions such as ALS and normal pressure hydrocephalus, underscoring the importance of comprehensive clinical assessments and longitudinal monitoring in achieving a conclusive diagnosis. Management strategies including conservative treatments and nutritional support are also addressed.
