Findings

This is a silent polymorphism, considered most likely not pathogenic. It was first reported in a Caucasian woman from northern Italy who was diagnosed with probable Alzheimer’s disease according to NINCDS-ADRDA criteria. She experienced symptom onset at age 81 and did not have a family history of dementia, consistent with sporadic AD. Segregation analysis was not possible in this case. The T>C polymorphism was absent in 114 healthy unrelated individuals, but the reporting authors indicated that the polymorphism was most likely not pathogenic due to the fact that it was a synonymous change and in a position not conserved in PSEN2 or in other species (Scacchi et al., 2007).
