Survival outcomes among patients with different combinations of apraxia of speech and agrammatic aphasia

Takeaway

  • Participants diagnosed with primary progressive apraxia of speech (PPAOS) have higher survival odds and lower risk of death than those diagnosed with both apraxia of speech and progressive agrammatic aphasia (AOS+PAA).

Why this matters

    Understanding differences in disease progression and diagnostic criteria among different forms of AOS may have implications on determining patient survival and prognosis.
