A person with corticobasal degeneration has increasing difficulty taking care of themselves. People may live five to 10 years after the onset of symptoms. Many of these individuals die from disease complications resulting from falls, lack of mobility or infections related to their inability to maintain their personal hygiene.

The disease increases the risk of life-threatening complications, such as:

  • Blood clots and pulmonary embolisms.
  • Pneumonia and bacterial infections.
  • Sepsis.
