PET in LRRK2 mutations: comparison to sporadic Parkinson's disease and evidence for presymptomatic compensation.

Parkinson's disease may arise from multiple aetiologies, including genetic mutations that are for the most part uncommon. We describe here the positron emission tomography (PET) findings in clinically affected and asymptomatic, high-risk members of two autosomal dominantly inherited Parkinson's disease kindreds with recently described mutations at the PARK8… (More)
