Conditions with autosomal dominant inheritance, such as FTDP-17, pose a 50% risk to all offspring of an affected individual.
For disorders such as FTDP-17, the development of a clinical test is important for confirmation of mutations initially identified in the research laboratory and to provide predictive testing of family members of affected individuals with known mutations.
In the case of FTDP-17 mutations, the penetrance is reported to be very high by the sixth decade of life (7).
