Abstract

This chapter describes the clinical and neuropathological phenotypes associated with Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease and prion protein cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The main sections are devoted to the clinical, neuropathological, biochemical and molecular genetic characteristics of this disorder. The clinical phenotypes may vary in presentation and age at onset. One table shows the genetic mutations associated with Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease and prion protein cerebral amyloid angiopathy; another shows the main neuropathological and biochemical characteristics associated with each mutation.
