Early-onset Alzheimer's disease, also called early-onset Alzheimer's, younger-onset Alzheimer's or early-onset AD, is Alzheimer's disease diagnosed before the age of 65. It is an uncommon form of Alzheimer's, accounting for only 5–10% of all Alzheimer's cases. About 60% have a positive family history of Alzheimer’s and 13% of them are inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Most cases of early-onset Alzheimer's, however, share the same traits as the "late-onset" form and are not caused by genetic mutations. And little is understood about how it starts.
