Abstract

A familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FALS) patient with G37R mutation of superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene revealed an early onset and relatively slow progression. Neuropathological examination of this patient showed widespread neuronal degeneration extending to overall length of the spinal cord and the brainstem with extremely rare Lewy body-like inclusions (LBI), while there were no vacuoles in neurons, a characteristic feature in transgenic mice expressing G37R SOD1 mutation.
