    Hi,

    The mother of my pen friend has just written to me to say that her husband has been diagnosed as suffering from "atrophie temporale du cerveau". I can't find anything about this in the dictionary. What does it mean? Her letter also mentions something about "apparantée à alzeimer" but I'm not sure how this relates.

    Thanks

    Thanks archijacq for the explanation that makes things a lot clearer for me.
