Mutations in the PINK1 gene have recently been shown to cause autosomal recessive Parkinson disease (PD). The authors assessed the prevalence of PINK1 gene mutations in 290 well-characterized early- and late-onset PD patients from Ireland. In a 51-year-old PD patient with a family history of PD, the authors identified a novel heterozygous mutation (R147H) in exon 2 of the PINK1 gene. Overall, these data indicate that PINK1 mutations are a rare cause of PD in Ireland.
