Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) with mutations in the tau gene (MAPT) causes familial frontotemporal dementia with tau pathology. Many of these mutations result in morphological phenotypes resembling sporadic tauopathies, although, to date, no such cases mimicking argyrophilic grain disease (AgD) have been documented. We now present a case with a novel S305I MAPT mutation and a morphological phenotype showing resemblance to AgD. At the age of 39, the patient developed behavioural and… CONTINUE READING
