Non-syndromic familial congenital anorectal malformationsGene: EBF2
Kim et al 2018 (PMID: 29704291) report 6 individuals with imperforate anus from 3 generations of one Korean family. A missense mutation (p.Ala72Val)) in EBF2 was found by whole exome sequencing. The variant segregates with the phenotype in the family, is rare (1/120,788 Europeans, ExAC), is evolutionarily highly conserved, and is predicted to be functionally damaging. No functional studies were performed.
