Recent reports have established oxidative stress and damage as playing a role in the pathogenesis of a number of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, corticobasal degeneration, Pick's disease and Alexander's disease. Here we present evidence that oxidative damage is also one of the earliest cytopathological markers of neuronal dysfunction in frontotemporal dementia.
