Atypical parkinsonism of progressive supranuclear palsy–parkinsonism (PSP-P) phenotype with rare variants in FBXO7 and VPS35 genes associated with Lewy body pathology
A total of 23 gene loci have been identified in association with Parkinson’s disease (PD), but the neuropathological background has been described in only a few of them. We had recently an opportunity to study the pathological finding in case of atypical parkinsonism associated with rare sequence variants in the FBXO7 and VPS35 genes; the neuropathology associated with variants in these genes has not yet been described . All steps of the study were approved by the local ethics committee of the University Hospital Olomouc.
This case was a member of a family with positive history of parkinsonism; the family originated from an area of the Czech Republic with a proven increased prevalence of parkinsonism [2, 8]. As described in our previous paper, the patient was an 83-year-old man who had atypical parkinsonism with a phenotype of progressive supranuclear palsy—parkinsonism (PSP-P) with onset at the age of 66  (see Video). The disease manifested initially with the signs typical for...
