We are a group of patients, family, friends, physicians,administrators and others who seek to provide support andinformation for those affected by Posterior Cortical Atrophy(PCA). Although PCA is not caused by one disease, for the majority of patients with PCA the cause is Alzheimer’s disease.
PCA is a condition of the brain that progressively worsens over time and affects areas inthe brain that process visual information. The eyes are not involved or affected in PCA.Symptoms vary with the person, but the most common presentation at onset is simplyhaving difficulty seeing despite a healthy eye examination.
As PCA progresses,symptoms become more apparent and people with PCA experience difficulty reading,difficulty finding objects that are in plain view, problems with depth perception, troubledriving, or problems recognizing objects, images, or faces.
