Abstract

The tropomyosin-receptor kinase fused gene (TFG) has recently been implicated in several distinct hereditary disorders, including the autosomal-recessive form of complicated hereditary spastic paraplegia called SPG57. Previously, three homozygous variants of the TFG gene were reported in five families with SPG57, in which early onset spastic paraplegia, optic atrophy, and peripheral neuropathy were variably identified. Here, we present the first Japanese patient with SPG57, and have added a homozygous p.Ile66Thr variant as the fourth SPG57 genotype.
