Patients with autopsy-confirmed CBD present with various clinical phenotypes. The current diagnostic criteria for CBD (Armstrong et al. 2013) define four clinical phenotypes: Corticobasal syndrome characterized by asymmetric rigidity and apraxia; frontal behavioral-spatial syndrome (FBS); nonfluent/agrammatic variant of primary progressive aphasia (naPPA); and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The frequency of these clinical phenotypes in autopsy-confirmed CBD was assessed.
To determine the frequencies of clinical phenotypes of corticobasal degeneration (CBD), including patients meeting multiple criteria for clinical phenotypes. 
We reviewed medical records of 238 patients with autopsy-confirmed CBD in the Mayo Clinic brain bank collected between 1998 and 2021. The diagnosis and clinical phenotypes of CBD were assigned based on the Armstrong’s criteria for CBD. The diagnostic criteria for PSP (Höglinger et al. 2017) were also applied where applicable.
Of 238 patients, 93 patients (39%) had probable CBD and 114 patients (48%) had possible CBD. Some of the remaining patients met criteria for PSP, including probable Richardson syndrome (N = 5), probable PSP-parkinsonism (N = 3), and possible PSP-predominant ocular motor dysfunction (N = 2). Of the clinical phenotypes, 124 patients (45%) were possible CBS, 19 (7%) were probable CBS, 122 (44%) were PSPS, 86 (31%) were FBS, and 45 (16%) were naPPA. Of note, 114 patients met more than one clinical phenotype; 12 patients met four, 29 patients met three, and 73 patients met two.
Although CBS and PSPS were the most common clinical presentations of CBD, more than half of patients met multiple criteria for each clinical phenotype. Some CBD patients also met criteria for PSP; therefore, the specificity of these criteria needs to be further assessed.
