Adult-onset neuronal intranuclear hyaline inclusion disease

Neurology. 1986 Jun;36(6):785-90. doi: 10.1212/wnl.36.6.785.


We studied the clinical and pathologic features of two cases of neuronal intranuclear hyaline inclusion disease. The cases were unique in late onset, presentation with dementia, possible autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance (in one patient), predominance of inclusions in glial cells, and mineral deposits within some inclusions. Differences from other reported cases indicate that this is probably not a homogeneous entity.
