A214T reported in one extended family with AD osteosclerosis - 4FMs reported with CSS, others have macrocephaly/brachycephaly. Other variants not associated with CSS? ; Review on behalf of Tracy Lester and Andrew Wilkie

Red List (low evidence)

p.Ala214Thr segregating in one family with osteosclerosis. Mutation is gain of function. Several other heterozygous mutations in LRP5 are associated with osteosclerosis without craniosynostosis, and recessive mutations cause osteoporosis-pseudoglioma syndrome and exudative vitreoretinopathy. Only the specific A214T or other osteosclerosis-related mutation should be considered causative.
