I don't know

Associated with phenotype in OMIM, not in G2P. At least 9 variants reported in numerous cases of Mevalonic aciduria (with or without Hyper-IgD syndrome). Although in the majority of cases this condition results in infant death, PMID 12563048 reports teenage siblings in whom ataxia is the predominant clinical manifestation, with febrile attacks occuring less frequently.
