Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is generally considered to be a sporadic disease; however, occasional cases of familial PSP have been described. The rarity of reports of familial PSP may be attributed in part to an inability to detect subclinical disease in affected relatives who subsequently die before symptoms clinically develop.

Abstract

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is generally considered to be a sporadic disease; however, occasional cases of familial PSP have been described. The rarity of reports of familial PSP may be attributed in part to an inability to detect subclinical disease in affected relatives who subsequently die before symptoms clinically develop.
