According to the Alzheimer’s Society, about 10-15 percent of people with frontotemporal dementia have a very strong family history of the condition.

This means having three or more relatives with frontotemporal dementia across at least two generations.

“A similar number of people with frontotemporal dementia have a weaker family history of dementia, but not necessarily of frontotemporal dementia,” says the Alzheimer’s Society.

In up to 30 percent of all people with frontotemporal dementia, the condition is known to be caused by a mutation in a single gene, it says.
