An expanded hexanucleotide (GGGGCC) repeat in a non-coding promoter region of open reading frame 72 of chromosome 9 (C9ORF72) has been recently identified as a major cause of familial and sporadic frontotemporal lobar degeneration. We describe the clinical picture of a 64-year-old woman carrying the hexanucleotide repeat expansion, who developed a sporadic early-onset form of behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia characterized by the occurrence of uncommon behavioral manifestations such as binge eating disturbance and by a rapid worsening of cognitive abilities. Our report confirms previous studies asserting that C9ORF72 repeats may sustain heterogeneous clinical syndromes.
