Factors associated with the onset and persistence of post-lumbar puncture headache.

Monserrate AE, Ryman DC, Ma S, Xiong C, Noble JM, Ringman JM, Morris JC, Danek A, Müller-Sarnowski F, Clifford DB, McDade EM, Brooks WS, Darby DG, Masters CL, Weston PS, Farlow MR, Graff-Radford NR, Salloway SP, Fagan AM, Oliver A, Bateman RJ,

To identify factors associated with the risk, onset, and persistence of post-dural puncture headache (PDPH). Factors that acutely lower CSF pressure (eg, seated positioning or extracting very high volumes of CSF) may be associated with transient post-lumbar puncture headache, without increasing rates of persistent PDPH or therapeutic blood patch. Collection of up to 30 mL of CSF appears to be well tolerated and safe.

To assess the relative frequency of unique mutations and their associated characteristics in 97 individuals with mutations in progranulin (GRN), an important cause of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). GRN+ FTLD-TDP differs in key features from GRN- FTLD-TDP.

Mutations in progranulin explain atypical phenotypes with variants in MAPT.

Hemorrhage is uncommon in new Alzheimer family with Flemish amyloid precursor protein mutation.

Brooks WS, Kwok JB, Halliday GM, Godbolt AK, Rossor MN, Creasey H, Jones AO, Schofield PR

To describe clinical, neuropathologic, and genetic features of a family of British origin with the Flemish APP mutation. This expands the number of families reported with mutations in the coding region of the amyloid precursor protein gene. Cerebral hemorrhage appears to be less frequent in this family than in the previously reported Flemish pedigree with the same mutation.
