Mutations in six genes have been unequivocally linked to Parkinson disease (PD). A recent study found that among 953 patients with the early-onset form of PD, ≈17% harbored a mutation in one of these genes. This finding raises important issues concerning genetic testing and genetic counseling for early-onset PD.
