Comment on list classification: Updated rating from Red to Green: SMC1A is part of the Cornelia de Lange phenotypic series. >3 cases of SMC1A variants causing CdLS, although microcephalic component is rarer than in other forms of CdLS.
Created: 2 Mar 2017, 3:49 p.m.
Added gene duplication based on PMID:27164022 who report a CdLS patient with duplication of the gene SMC1A (2nd case of a duplication of the gene SMC1A).
Created: 2 Mar 2017, 3:11 p.m.
Although the Cornelia de Lange syndromes (CdLS) are not part of the primary dwarfism spectrum and typically present with additional features other than microcephaly, they are included in this panel after clinical discussion, since a small proportion of cases may overlap with the microcephaly primary dwarfism spectrum.

Comment on mode of inheritance: MOI confirmed by OMIM.

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.
