Résumé

ALS is now understood to be a complex multisystem neurodegenerative disease because areas other than the motor cortices of the brain undergo degeneration. Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) may be associated with motor neuron disease, and the transactive response DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) is a major pathological substrate underlying both diseases. The recent discovery of a gene that can cause both FTD, ALS and FTD-ALS, C9ORF72, has modified the way for considering these two pathologies. These findings would allow the development of potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets for these devastating diseases. This review summarizes the key points leading up to our current understanding of the genetic, clinical and neuropathological overlap between FTD and ALS.
