Findings

This mutation was found in two sisters affected by early onset Alzheimer's disease (Rogaeva et al., 2001). They inherited the mutation from their mother, who was asymptomatic at age 55. Interestingly, both sisters also carried a second PSEN1 mutation, I143T, which they inherited from their father. Information related to his clinical history was not reported. Both sisters developed symptoms before age 35.
