Findings

This mutation was identified in one out of 98 Belgian individuals dignosed with frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Age at onset in the mutation carrier was 63 years and the disease started with memory disturbances evolving into FTLD with parkinsonism. The G273R mutation was absent in 181 Belgian control individuals (van der Zee et al., 2006).
