Findings

This mutation was identified in a Spanish woman who developed cognitive impairment, including memory loss, as well as gait disruption secondary to spastic paraparesis, at age 40 (Jiménez-Caballero et al., 2008; Gómez-Tortosa et al., 2010). Her brother and mother developed similar symptoms in their late 40s.

Neuropathology
Neuropathological data are not available, but MRI of the proband’s brain showed symmetrical cortical and subcortical atrophy, particularly in the frontal lobes, and SPECT revealed bilateral temporal hypoperfusion.

Biological Effects
Unknown
