Findings

This was the third mutation discovered at the 301 codon in MAPT. It was identified in a 57 year-old man with a two-year history of cognitive decline, gait disturbances, behavioral changes, apathy, speech difficulties, and falls. Four family members had similar symptoms, but genetic analysis was not possible and segregation could not be assessed (Lllado et al., 2007).

Neuropathology

MRI of the proband showed mild global atrophy that was more prominent in the frontal and temporal lobes (Lllado et al., 2007).

Biological Effect

Unknown.
