Arina Puzriakova (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: New gene added by Zornitza Stark. There are sufficient unrelated cases with prenatal hydrops and variants in this gene to rate as Green on this panel. ALG8 is also already Green on the GMS Fetal anomalies (R21) panel.

CDGs can present prenatally with non-immune hydrops fetalis. Please note these two reviews: one of ALG8-CDG, reporting hydrops in 3/15 patients; and the other reporting hydrops in a range of CDGs.
