Intermediate phenotype of ATP13A2 mutation in two Chilean siblings: Towards a continuum between parkinsonism and hereditary spastic paraplegia

A recent case report, which was based on a genetic diagnosis established at CENTOGENE, discusses this phenomenon for ATP13A2. It was published in Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.
