This mutation was identified in a Japanese woman diagnosed with probable Alzheimer’s disease based on NINCDS-ADRDA criteria (Hamaguchi et al., 2009). She started to develop memory impairment at age 53. She had a family history of dementia, but genetic analysis was performed only on the proband. Her sister was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 49. The proband's mother died at the age of 80 without dementia. Two of the mother’s five siblings developed dementia, one in her 60s and one in her 50s. The proband’s father had died young without dementia. Information is not available about the paternal line, therefore it remains unclear if the mutation was transmitted through the maternal line with incomplete penetrance observed in the proband’s mother.


Unknown. MRI of the proband showed mild medial temporal atrophy. FDG-PET showed glucose hypometabolism in the bilateral parietal cortices and posterior cingulate gyri (Hamaguchi et al., 2009).
