Findings

This silent mutation was identified while screening MAPT in three sets of patient samples with non-Alzheimer's degenerative dementia. It was not found in 95 control individuals and was described as a "rare sequence variant" of unknown clinical significance (Houlden et al., 1999).

Neuropathology

Unknown.
