Extensive white matter involvement in patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration: think progranulin

Abstract : Mutations in the progranulin (GRN) gene are responsible for 20% of familial cases of frontotemporal dementias. All cause haploinsufficiency of progranulin, a protein involved in inflammation, tissue repair, and cancer. Carriers of the GRN mutation are characterized by a variable degree of asymmetric brain atrophy, predominantly in the frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes. We describe 4 GRN mutation carriers with remarkable widespread white matter lesions (WML) associated with lobar atrophy shown on magnetic resonance imaging.
