Pick's disease/FTLD confusionEdit
The Pick's disease/FTLD distinction is potentially very confusing. I think the recent edits by 188.8.131.52 were a step in the right direction. Following his/her lead, perhaps it is best if this page serves as somewhat of a disambiguation page, and all of the important information about the disorder can then be placed in the article on FTLD.
Unfortunately, there will be a temptation for future authors to add additional information to this page in parallel to what is already said about this disorder on the FTLD page. Thus, another (potentially better) option would be to merge the two pages into a combined Pick's disease/FTLD article. sallison 06:39, 29 March 2007 (UTC)qwer
In the "Causes" section it is claimed that Pick's disease is not known to be hereditary, with no known specific genetic mutation, but this article describes a study of hereditary Pick's disease as well as the mutation the family line possesses.

Merging in Pick bodiesEdit

This morning my wife read someone's obituary who died "after a struggle with Pick's disease". We'd never heard of it, but I had the Wikipedia open and found this article. The article didn't at first tell me that it was a fatal and untreatable disease of the brain, which is the sort of information I was looking for.
It would be good, in the lead, to clearly summarize the kind of disease, what parts or systems of the body are affected, how often it happens, who it happens to, its treatment and prognosis. Instead, this lead dived into irrelevant "not to be confused with" synonyms. We should have a good accurate overview and basic information before citing tons of medical journals and manuals for diagnosis. --Wtshymanski (talk) 16:15, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
removal of "sample presentation"Edit
The section was totally out of tone with a normal prose encyclopedia, and (if it is to be included at all, which I'm dubious on) needs to be written into sentences and paragraphs. - Aaron Brenneman (talk) 14:37, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
Would it be possible to include scans of a 'normal' brain so that we can have something to compare to? Something with the same three presentations as included on this page. It would provide context for 'laymen'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theshowmecanuck (talk • contribs) 08:35, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed merge of Frontotemporal dementia with Pick's diseaseEdit
Pick's or Pick disease is the common aka of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and is specific to behavioural variant FTD involving tau - confusing to have this as a separate entry Iztwoz (talk) 22:32, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
