Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is an acquired impairment of language caused by neurodegenerative disease affecting language regions in the brain. Unlike aphasia caused by stroke, the language impairments in PPA gradually worsen over time as atrophy spreads. Current consensus criteria for diagnosis identify three clinical variants, each of which is associated with a different pathological entity: a semantic variant, with verbal and nonverbal semantic deficits; a logopenic variant, with anomia and phonological working memory problems; and a nonfluent variant, with agrammatism and/or apraxia of speech (Gorno-Tempini et al., 2011; Gorno-Tempini et al., 2004).
