Penetrance Penetrance is about 90% by age 75 years, but apparent incomplete penetrance has also been observed in a few cases [cruts et al 2006a, gass et al 2006]. more reports will be needed before the penetrance can be more accurately established. ...


Summaries for Grn-Related Frontotemporal Dementia

Genetics Home Reference : 25 GRN-related frontotemporal dementia is a progressive brain disorder that can affect behavior, language, and movement. The symptoms of this disorder usually become noticeable in a person's fifties or sixties, and affected people typically survive 6 to 7 years after the appearance of symptoms. However, the features of this condition vary significantly, even among affected members of the same family.

MalaCards based summary : Grn-Related Frontotemporal Dementia, also known as hereditary dysphasic disinhibition dementia, is related to frontotemporal lobar degeneration with ubiquitin-positive inclusions and dementia, frontotemporal, and has symptoms including personality changes, agitation and memory loss. An important gene associated with Grn-Related Frontotemporal Dementia is GRN (Granulin Precursor). The drugs Citalopram and Dopamine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and prefrontal cortex.
