Green List (high evidence)

PMID 19646678: A homozygous nonsense variant was identified in an affected Ashkenazi Jewish family with 3 individuals with SMA-PCH. 2 had severe microcephaly (-6SD at 5yo and -7.9SD at 19mo). The third was noted to be microcephalic but no figures given. PMID 24126608: "Three affected individuals from 2 unrelated families presented with a complex neuropathy phenotype characterized by axonal sensorimotor neuropathy and microcephaly". 2 sibs from one family had head circumference -4SD and -6SD and were chet for missense variants. The third unrelated individual was -6SD and hom for a nonsense variant. PMID 27281532: reports another individual with microcephaly but no details provided.
