Added 'watchlist' tag after demoting RAD51C from Green to Amber on the basis of a single case report.

Comment on list classification: Changed rating from Green to Amber based on re-evaluation of supporting evidence for Fanconi anaemia. Only 1 reported (biallelic) case supporting the FA phenotype (PMID:20400963). Helen Lindsay (Leeds Genetic Laboratory) also confirmed that there is only 1 reported case in literature and they have not identified any pathogenic mutations in FA patients to date. Agreed with Arianna Tucci and Helen Brittain that RAD51C should therefore be Amber on the basis of this single case report.

panel promoted to version 1

Rebecca Foulger (Genomics England curator)

2nd March 2017: Panel review was assessed and panel was revised according to expert review and additional curation. This panel began with an expert gene list from Professor Andrew Jackson (University of Edinburgh) for primary microcephaly (MCPH) and microcephalic primordial dwarfism (MPD). Other disorders are included where microcephaly is a primary feature. Disorders where microcephaly is not the primary presenting feature are not included (e.g. congenital disorders of glycosylation, Proud syndrome, Norrie disease). The panel does not include disorders with a cortical malformation (e.g. lissencephaly) since the Malformations of cortical development' panel would be applied to these patients.
