What Is Corticobasal Degeneration?

Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) is a progressive disorder characterized by nerve cell loss and atrophy of multiple areas of the brain. Brain cells from people with corticobasal degeneration often have abnormal accumulations of the protein tau. CBD usually progresses gradually over the course of six to eight years.
