We report a case of levodopa-responsive juvenile parkinsonism (JP) associated with a heterozygous ATP13A2 gene frameshift mutation. The clinical phenotype of our case is more severe when compared with other published reports of symptomatic heterozygous ATP13A2 mutation carriers. To our knowledge, this is the youngest reported patient with JP associated with a heterozygous ATP13A2 mutation. Our findings expand the clinical phenotypic spectrum of JP associated with heterozygous ATP13A2 mutation.
