Intermediate phenotype of ATP13A2 mutation in two Chilean siblings: Towards a continuum between parkinsonism and hereditary spastic paraplegia

A neurodegenerative disorder may affect distinct types of nerve cells in a patient-specific manner. This suggests that there is actually a continuum of possible pathologies. A recent case report, which was based on a genetic diagnosis established at CENTOGENE, discusses this phenomenon for ATP13A2. It was published in Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.
