Arina Puzriakova (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: Phenotype is relevant to this panel with a supportive animal model that recapitulates features such as microcephaly. However, additional cases required to validate pathogenicity prior to inclusion as diagnostic-grade. Therefore Rating Amber, awaiting further publications.

One consanguineous family with 2 affected sibs with primary microcephaly (-4SD), intellectual disability and short stature (-5/6SD), and homozygous frameshift variant in PDCD6IP. The homozygous variant was confirmed in both affected sibs, while the four healthy siblings and parents were heterozygous. The clinical features observed in the patients were similar to the phenotypes observed in mouse and zebrafish models of PDCD6IP mutations in previous studies. Borderline Red/Amber rating in view of the supportive animal model data.
