This is important because EAD may be more common than previously believed, although the majority of studies characterizing clinical features in AD have focused on patients with more typical later ages of onset [11-13]. Understanding clinical features unique to EAD is also important given that this disorder often affects people of working-age, resulting in significant economic consequences to these patients and their families.
