Penetrance Penetrance is age dependent and incomplete even in older individuals who have a spast pathogenic variant. it is estimated to be 85% by age 45 years [fonknechten et al 2000]. using data from a series of individuals with spast variants diagnosed in paris, the calculated penetrance is approximately 50% at age 27 years and 80% at 50 years [author, personal observation]. age dependence is explained partly by variability in age at onset and partly by difficulty in determining with precision the age of onset when it is insidious...

Summaries for Spastic Paraplegia 4

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Spastic paraplegia 4 (SPG4) is the most common type of hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Disease onset ranges from infancy to older adulthood. SPG4 is characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness and spasticity (stiff or rigid muscles) in the lower half of the body. In rare cases, individuals may have a more complex form with seizures, ataxia, and dementia. SPG4 is caused by mutations in the SPAST gene. Severity of symptoms usually worsens over time, however some individuals remain mildly affected throughout their lives. Medications, such as antispastic drugs and physical therapy may aid in stretching spastic muscles and preventing contractures (fixed tightening of muscles).

MalaCards based summary : Spastic Paraplegia 4, also known as spg4, is related to spastic paraplegia 4, autosomal dominant and paraplegia, and has symptoms including low back pain, urgency of micturition and agitation. An important gene associated with Spastic Paraplegia 4 is SPAST (Spastin).

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Spastic paraplegia type 4 is part of a group of genetic disorders known as hereditary spastic paraplegias. These disorders are characterized by progressive muscle stiffness (spasticity) and the development of paralysis of the lower limbs (paraplegia). Hereditary spastic paraplegias are divided into two types: pure and complex. The pure types involve only the lower limbs, whereas the complex types also involve the upper limbs (to a lesser degree) and the nervous system. Spastic paraplegia type 4 is a pure hereditary spastic paraplegia.
