Findings

This mutation, located in the first hydrophilic loop of the presenilin-1 protein, was detected in a Greek patient, identified as “p.62”. She experienced symptom onset at age 33 and died three years later. Prominent symptoms included, rapidly progressing dementia, drop attacks, myoclonic seizures, and bilateral spasticity. The patient had a family history of very early-onset dementia. The patient’s brother and mother died at ages 35 and 36 years, respectively, and the family indicated that her maternal grandfather and uncle had similar disease courses (Finckh et al., 2005).

Neuropathology

Autopsy confirmed the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, reporting neuritic plaques (Braak stage C), neurofibrillary tangles (stage VI), and severe amyloid angiopathy (Finckh et al., 2005).

Biological Effect

Unknown.
