C19orf12 mutation causing mitochondrial membrane-protein Associated Neurodegeneration masquerading as spastic paraplegia


      Mitochondrial Membrane-protein Associated Neurodegeneration (MPAN) is a rare disease, caused by C19orf12 mutations and up to 29 different mutations have been described. We report a young woman presented with spastic paraparesis due to C19orf12 gene. MPAN presenting like Hereditary spastic paraplegia-43 is rare and the genetic mutation had been described only once in the literature.
