Mutations in the PINK1 gene are associated with early onset autosomal recessive parkinsonism (EOP), which is characterized by a phenotypic presentation that, although variable, generally overlaps with that of idiopathic Parkinson Disease (PD). The clinical features and brain metabolomics of a patient who was compound heterozygous for the novel association of PINK1 A168P/W437X mutations have been extensively characterized. Apart from a few typical EOP findings, the clinical features and SPECT mostly overlapped with typical idiopathic PD. Brain metabolomics, as examined by magnetic resonance spectroscopy and PET, were clearly distinguishable.
