Abstract

Introduction: It has been suggested that DM1 is associated with an accelerating cognitive ageing process. The aim of this study was to measure cognitive performance over a decade in adult onset DM1 and to explore disease related and demographic factors. Methods: 25 patients were examined with a comprehensive battery of neuropsychological tests and were rated on muscle function at baseline, five- and fourteen years follow up. Neuropsychological measures were compared to age-normative data on all occasions. Results: Patients performed significantly worse at follow-up. At retesting a significant worsening of attention, executive, visuospatial, arithmetic and verbal ability emerged. Age at onset, disease duration and measures on muscle impairment were not associated with cognitive performance over time. Conclusion: These results shows that aging in adult onset DM1 is associated with accelerating cognitive decline over time.
