: my mom appears to have PICS. is there a genetic factor? could someone send me some links with good information? my search engine requests keep going in the wrong direction.
I recently went to a support group sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association and they have some information about Picks Disease. There were two family members whose loved one had Picks. It seems that it hits between 40 to 60 years old. It also starts with behavioral symptoms first and confusion later. A.A. has web site and local chapters everywhere! Good luck. Pat
