    POSTERIOR CORTICAL ATROPHY (PCA) IS A CLINICAL SYNDROME that can be the initial presentation of several different neurodegenerative diseases. Initial clinical features typically are referable to occipitoparietal dysfunction, including components of the Balint syndrome (simultanagnosia, ocular...
