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 dementia and frontotemporal dementia and/or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1, and has symptoms including personality changes, agitation and memory loss. The drugs Dopamine and Memantine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and prefrontal cortex.
