Green List (high evidence)

Schaaf et al: patient with dermosterolsis with relative macrocephaly, mild arthrogryposis, and dysmorphic facial features. The diagnosis of desmosterolosis was established by detection of significant elevation of plasma desmosterol levels and reduced enzyme activity of DHCR24 upon expression of the patient's DHCR24 cDNA. The patient was found to be a compound heterozygote for c.281G>A (p.R94H) and c.1438G>A (p.E480K) mutations. 4 individuals in Bedouin kindred with dermosterolsis and distal contractures. Two other reports 12457401; 29175559 in association with milder phenotype of AMC.
