Primary progressive aphasia is a recently described, uncommon language disorder with unclear etiological and clinical boundaries. The infrequency and ambiguity of the syndrome may prompt psychiatric consultation. The authors review the pertinent features of one such referral, including a brief literature review of the salient aspects of the differential diagnosis, and note the implications for appropriate treatment.
