What Is Pick’s Disease?
The National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation supports families with loved ones who have been diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Disease, which is different than Pick’s Disease. However, the NNPDF occasionally receives inquiries about Pick’s Disease. This page is provided as a basic referral for those seeking information about Pick’s Disease or Frontotemporal Dementia.
