For example, the penetrance of the most common form of autosomal dominant dystonia (DYT1) is only about 40%. Also, penetrance depends on patient’s age and comprehensiveness of testing. Thus, the penetrance of the Huntington’s disease gene at age 20 is only about 10%, whereas it is greater than 90% by age 70. Similarly, many people with cerebral cavernous malformations seen on MRI will not have any clinical symptoms and appear not to have the disease. The family should also receive a discussion of prognosis and natural history of the specific neurogenetic disease.

Similarly, many people with cerebral cavernous malformations seen on MRI will not have any clinical symptoms and appear not to have the disease. The family should also receive a discussion of prognosis and natural history of the specific neurogenetic disease. It is especially important to convey information of variable expression, that is, the range of both severity and types of clinical signs in individuals who have the disease gene. It is often helpful to describe a very mild case, an average or typical case, and a severe case.
