A subset of early-onset Alzheimer's disease is inherited as an autosomal-dominant trait and is associated with mutations in the genes encoding β-amyloid precursor protein, presenilin 1, or presenilin 2. In this study, we identified 2 PSEN1 mutations (1 novel and 1 known) in 2 unrelated Iranian families with autosomal-dominant Alzheimer's disease. The disease progressed rapidly with a mean age at onset of 33 and 42 years and an age at death ranging from 43 to 48 years.
