Abstract

The most common mutation causing Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker (GSS) disease is P102L in the prion protein. Previously, this mutation has only been found in coupling with methionine at residue 129. We describe a patient with GSS disease in whom the P102L mutation is in coupling with valine at residue 129. The clinical presentation in P102L-V129 differs greatly from that seen in P102-M129 patients.
