Abstract

The authors studied a family with pure autosomal dominant spastic paraplegia (ADHSP) that showed a marked intrafamilial variability in both age at onset and clinical severity, ranging from severe congenital presentation to mild involvement after age 55. They found a novel mutation in the SPG4 gene, which segregates with the disease in six patients. The mutation affects the consensus donor splice site of SPG4 intron 16, resulting in a premature termination codon at amino acid 578. The data confirm the pathologic significance of SPG4 mutations in pure ADHSP and add to the list of known SPG4 allelic variants.
