I don't know

Amber as definite HS-like features have been reported although the clinical total features are different (comedonal acne for FGFR2).

Comment on list classification: Updated rating from Red to Amber following review from expert and disease nominator Prof. John McGrath. Hidradenitis suppurativa phenotype reported for patient with FGFR2 mutation, but alongside nevus comedones.

PMID:28293556 report hidradenitis and nevus comedonicus in a male patient. A rare, heterozygous, missense mutation in the FGFR2 gene was found (c.G492C, p.K164N). Other family members had similar conditions but samples could not be taken from the family.

6th July 2017: Revised panel and promoted to Version 1.0 based on expert review. Although PSENEN, NCSTN and PSEN1 (all green genes on this panel) collectively only account for approximately 7% of all hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), there is insufficient evidence to promote any further genes to green at this time.
