Quick Reference

Any neuropathy in which there are brain lesions with an excess of tau protein. In Alzheimer's disease the neuronal cytoskeleton is progressively disrupted and replaced by neurofibrillary tangles of paired helical filaments (PHFs) composed mainly of hyperphosphorylated forms of tau. Mutations in tau are associated with familial frontotemporal dementia with parkinsonism, and with Pick's disease.
