Atypical Symptoms

Just wondering if anyone has received a diagnosis of Atypical Alzheimer's?  DH's neurologist using terms like Atypical symptoms, moderate cerebellar atrophy and moderate cortical atrophy observed on MRI.  We are in the early stages of second opinion and I find it all very overwhelming.  Face to face meeting with Neurologist next week, but wondering if anyone has experience with this?

Thank you so much.

My friend has diagnosis of Atypical Alzheimer's.  It was because the PET scan only showed indication of Alzheimer's on one side of his brain, not because he had atypical symptoms.  His symptoms were just like everyone else's.
