Abstract

We sought to determine if Chamorro individuals with a family history of Guam dementia (GD) or Parkinson dementia complex (PDC) exhibit presymptomatic brain MRI changes. Sixty-six Chamorro subjects had neurocognitive assessment and volumetric MRI. MRI brain volumes differed between diagnostic groups (GD, PDC, control) and according to family history. Chamorros with a family history of PDC or dementia may have increased brain atrophy, suggesting a hereditary susceptibility to neurodegenerative disorders.
