Tauopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by pathological intracellular deposits of the protein tau. Isoform composition, morphology and anatomical distribution of cellular tau-immunoreactivities are defining distinct tauopathies as molecular pathological disease entities. The clinical spectrum of tauopathies includes syndromes with primary motor symptoms and with primary cognitive dysfunction. The traditional syndrome-based classification is currently being complemented by a molecular-pathological classification. While the syndrome-based classification is helpful to select symptomatic therapies, and to generate clinical working hypotheses about underlying etiologies, the molecular-pathological classification is most important for the development and application of molecularly tailored disease-modifying therapies.
